Venus Optics are a new, Chinese lens manufacturer who are specializing in manual focus, macro lenses…often with special capabilities. This particular macro lens is multi talented – not only is it the widest angle 1:1 macro lens ever made, but it has a very interesting optical shift feature for correcting perspective. With the overall quality of lenses manufactured in China greatly increasing these days – this could be a really interesting offering.
As always, this is a totally independent review.

This video includes my new test chart, as I’ve moved to a new place far away from all my old shooting locations. I’ve tried to make it a colourful one.
My Canon 70D had to be sold as I was saving up for my wedding/ honeymoon, so I’m still using my old Canon 60D. It’s kind of falling to pieces by now! All pictures and footage shot by me on Canon 6D and 60D cameras.
