A Laowa 24mm f/14 Relay 2x Macro lens is currently on display at Photokina and it's got a rather eye-catching design. 

Due to hit the shops next year, the Laowa 24mm f/14 Relay 2x Macro lens has a rather long lens barrel that Laowa says can be used to shoot shy subjects at difficult spots without scaring them.

The macro lens has a 2:1 maximum macro reproduction ratio, is resistant to temperature and extreme conditions and it's full-frame compatible. This isn't the first macro lens from Laowa, with a previously released 60mm f/2.8 macro lens.

When released, it will be available in Canon and Nikon mounts and is full-frame compatible. No information on pricing has been released yet. 

Laowa has also recently announced the pricing and availability of the 12mm f/2.8 lens as well as the 15mm lens for Sony E Mount
