This is the Widest Macro Lens in the World The new Laowa 15mm f/4 1:1 Macro lens is the first lens in the market with an ultra wide angle of view and 1:1 Macro ability. This allows photographers to start experiencing the rather undeveloped field of ‘Wide Angle Macro Photography’ without using an extension tube. Macro Lenses currently in the market tends to have a mid to long focal length and it limits users to take very close-up shots of the insect or flowers, without showing much of the background details like its habitat or environment.
