Here is a Laowa RF 100mm F2.8 APO 2:1 Macro lens review. A third party lens for the Canon RF mount that seems to be rather interesting, and has an interesting price.
It features an apochromatic (APO) characteristic that chromatic aberration at both ‘in-focus’ & ‘out-of-focus’ is both invisible. This new 100mm lens can cover full frame sensor size and focus from 2:1 magnification to infinity. The lens has a similar physical size to other 100mm Macro lenses in the market but its wider magnification range allows macro photographers to capture subjects at any sizes. This Laowa RF 100mm f/2.8 lens can also focus to infinity and serve as a portrait lens with exceptional optics quality.
