– Great image quality for a budget ultra macro lens.
– Excellent build quality and feels durable.
– The ability to capture 2.5-5x magnification makes it incredibly versatile.
– Manual focus and aperture control provide complete control over focusing.

– Due to its very high magnification, it takes a lot of experience and practice to use this lens properly.
– At 25mm, it’s not suitable for general-purpose photography.
– The lens hood is sold separately, which adds to the overall cost.

Overall, the Laowa 25mm f/2.8 2.5-5X Ultra Macro camera lens is an excellent budget option for those looking to get into ultra macro photography. It provides immense magnification and produces sharp images with great detail. However, its very high magnification requires a lot of practice to master. Its build quality is excellent, and it is durable, which is a plus. However, it’s not a versatile lens as it’s only useful for macro photography. It’s a great value for money and would be a great addition to any photographer’s kit who is interested in extreme close-up photography.
