The Leica APO-Macro-Summarit-S 120 mm f/2.5 CS (96 mm in 35 mm format) has a true dual function. Firstly, it is a macro lens for closeup photography up to a reproduction ratio of 1:2, and secondly, it is a fast telephoto lens with an unusually wide maximum aperture of f/2.5. At the same time, it offers such astounding imaging qualities at maximum aperture throughout its entire focusing range that stopping down really only increases the depth of field but cannot further increase its superior contrast rendition. This brings countless fascinating options for exploring the creative opportunities offered by selective sharpness. This version with a central shutter further increases its enormous range of potential uses.
The lens design comprises nine elements in seven groups, and its frontgroup focusing with a floating element guarantees outstanding contrast performance at even the shortest focusing distances of the macro domain. Three elements are made of glasses with anomalous partial dispersion and two of these have extremely low dispersion, which minimizes monochromatic aberrations. The sophisticated apochromatic correction enables perfect resolution of even high-contrast fine detail structures.
