07Focal Reducer FB

Laowa has launched a new 0.7x Focal Reducer for its 24mm f/14 2X Macro Probe lens. The 0.7x Focal Reducer reduces the crop factor when using the probe lens on APS-C/ Super35 and Micro Four Thirds cameras. This helps retain the perspective of the probe lens while also increasing the maximum aperture to f/10.

The following various mounts are available:

  • Canon EF – Canon RF
  • Canon EF – Sony E
  • Canon EF – Fuji X
  • Canon EF – M43
  • Canon EF – L mount
  • ARRI PL – Canon RF
  • ARRI PL- SonyE
  • ARRIPL- Fuji X
  • ARRI PL – M43
  • Canon EF – L mount

The 0.7x Focal Reducer effectively reduces the crop factor from 1.5x to 1.05x on Super35 and from 2x to 1.4x on Micro Four Thirds sized sensors.

Yes, this is a pretty niche product, because the only people likely to use it will be owners of the PL mount version of the probe lens who want to use the ARRI PL – Canon EF Focal Reducer on cameras such as the Canon EOS C70, RED Komodo, Sony APS-C series, Fujifilm X series, Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K, Lumix GH5, Leica CL, etc.

The focal reducer is made out of metal, and Laowa claims that it not only provides stability for adapting lenses, but it also improves durability.

Price & Availability

The Laowa 0.7x Focal Reducer is currently available to purchase on Venus Optics official websites: http://www.venuslens.net/ / https://laowacine.com/ and via authorized dealers. It retails for $250 USD.
