Excellent image quality in the close-up range, outstanding sharpness and fascinating detail fidelity are a matter of course for this lens. Stopping the lens down by one or two stops results in superb results at greater distances as well. It is also flare-free, even under difficult lighting conditions. Vignetting and distortion are practically non-existent. With its focal length of 60 mm, it has a particularly versatile range of applications. When high speed can be foregone at this focal length in order to gain a focusing range from infinity down to 27 cm, a reproduction ratio of 1:2, this lens is the perfect choice. An even closer re production ratio of 1:1 can be
achieved in combination with the LEICA MACRO-ADAPTER-R.
