This macrophoto lens allows expanded photography from life-size to 5x magnification. A floating system using three lens groups has been adopted to deliver high variable magnification in the macro region. It effectively corrects the aberration fluctuation which accompanies changes in magnification. With a UD lens element as the second element, secondary spectrum, a problem during high magnification, is minimized, guaranteeing outstanding imaging performance. The lens is equipped with an EMD (electromagnetic diaphragm) to deliver AE photography*1 Subtle adjustments to magnification are possible using the wide ring. A light-blocking line is incorporated into the front of the lens to reduce inclusion when very close to the subject. It is possible to use the Macro Ring Lite MR-14EX and the Macro Twin Lite MT-24EX. The lens comes with a removable tripod mount which allows smooth switching between vertical and horizontal photography and offers solid support.
