The Macro 120 mm has exceptionally high performance making it a very versatile lens not only for close-up work but general applications too where a slightly long lens is required. Image quality and light distribution, even in the close focusing range as well as at maximum aperture are extremely good. Focusing, manual or autofocus, is from infinity to 1:1scale without the need for extension tubes. Autofocus range can also be limited to near range, far range or full range by a setting on the camera.
A camera as fast and versatile as an H system model demands the very best from its lenses. All HC lenses are engineered to ensure optimal performance and image quality, whether using film or digital. No short-cuts, no compromises. All HC lenses have electronic shutter mechanisms and feature Multi Coating for efficient stray light elimination, an integral focus drive motor, and instant access to manual focus without switching between manual and auto focus. The HC lenses use metal, not plastic, wherever possible, in order to ensure their reliability and durability year after year. In addition, the special optical design of the lenses provides a uniquely soft, smooth quality to the blurred or out-of-focus areas of the image. All lenses use threaded filters and include lens shade and bayonet mount and can be reverse mounted for transport.
