Venus Optics has introduced a unique lens specifically designed for industrial and scientific applications. The Laowa Aurogon FF 10-50x NA0.5 Supermicro APO “microscope” lens is compatible with Canon EF, Canon RF, Nikon F, Nikon Z, and Sony E bayonet mounts, offering magnifications of 10x, 20x, 35x, and 50x.
Delivered in a specialized case, the lens includes various attachments to adapt to specific tasks and shooting conditions. To achieve different magnification levels, users can switch between attachments, each varying in length. The Laowa Aurogon FF 10-50x NA0.5 Supermicro APO lens is equipped with a focus ring that allows focusing within the range of 0.15 to 0.5 meters.
This highly specialized Laowa Aurogon FF 10-50x NA0.5 Supermicro APO lens maintains a consistent minimum working distance of 20 millimeters regardless of the selected magnification (10x, 20x, 35x, or 50x). Each attachment has different dimensions and weights, ranging from 112mm to 253mm in length and 377g to 609g in weight.
Apart from adjusting the magnification, users can also modify the brightness of the lens. The numerical aperture (NA), ranging from 0.15 to 0.5, can be customized to match camera sensor specifications, lighting conditions, and desired depth of field. Calculating NA involves intricate mathematical calculations.
The lens boasts an apochromatic optical design, evident from the “APO” designation in its name, ensuring exceptional image quality, accurate color rendition, and effective aberration control.
