A group of macro photographers developed a set of lenses to do all the things they wished they could do, and the result is pretty cool.
Via their Kickstarter:
Macro lenses in the market tend to have a long focal length (from 60mm to 120mm) and the subject fills most of the frame, isolating it from the surrounding environment. Our Laowa 24mm, instead, allows you to focus really close (2cm @ 2:1) to the subject, showing a great amount of detail and texture. But at the same time, you can enjoy a compelling wide angle 'Bug Eye' view (84.1°) so that more background details can then be included in the shots. You can easily create a very informative and stunning macro bug-eye perspective that no other lenses can do. The fact that it can focus really close to the subject enables a lot of shooting possibility.
Here's another demo from their Kickstarter with a lot of gimmicky effects that detract from how cool the lenses actually are:
