This is a full-fledged macro lens enabling shooting from infinity to half life-size of the photographed object (life-sized when using a life-size adapter) without accessories.

The newly designed optical system completely compensates for faults such as aberrations and reductions in marginal illumination that tend to occur in close-up shooting, enabling sharp and high-contrast expression throughout the entire frame from life-size to infinity.

This lens also provides excellent operability by incorporating an information mechanism for full-aperture metering and stop-down metering in addition to a fully automatic diaphragm control mechanism.
