Pergear announces $229 60mm F2.8 2x macro lens for APS-C camera systems

Pergear has announced the release of a new APS-C 60mm F2.8 Ultra-Macro lens for Fujifilm X, Micro Four Thirds, Nikon Z and Sony E mount camera systems.

The lens is constructed of 11 elements in eight groups, has a 2x magnification ratio, uses a 10-blade aperture diaphragm and has a minimum focusing distance of 19.1cm. The aperture ring on the lens is declicked and on APS-C camera systems, the lens offers roughly a 90mm full-frame equivalent angle of view. While this can technically be used on full-frame cameras, Pergear does note it will have a vignette if the camera isn’t set to crop capture mode.

Although this lens should be compatible with nearly any camera you mount it to, Pergear has provided the following list of cameras it can be used on:
