Lens Roundup: Fujinon XF8-16mm f/2.8 R LM WR, XF200mm f/2 OIS WR, XF80mm f/2.8 R LM OIS WR Macro, HELIOS 44-4 58MM, and Laowa 9mm f/2.8 Zero-D

Photorumors received some additional information about the Laowa 24mm f/14 Relay 2x Macro Lens. Unfortunately, this lens will not be native X-mount, but they will likely sell it with an adapter like the Laowa 25mm f/2.8 2.5-5X Ultra-Macro.

I noticed the adapter when looking at their new ring light for the Laowa 25mm f/2.8 […]
