Macro meets telephoto
The Leica APO-Macro-Summarit-S 120mm f/2.5 (CS) is a true dual-purpose lens: firstly, it is a macro lens for close-up photography up to a reproduction ratio of 1:2. Secondly, it is a fast portrait lens. It achieves exceptional imaging performance and optimum contrast rendition at all apertures and distances. The selective sharpness opens a world of creative opportunities.
The design comprises nine elements in four groups. Three elements are made of glasses with anomalous partial dispersion, and two of these have extremely low dispersion to minimise chromatic aberrations. Front-group focusing and a floating element provide superior contrast rendition. Apochromatic correction ensures perfect resolution of even the finest details.
