The Super Selective Tele Macro with Unique Image Quality
The Zeiss Makro-Planar T* 100mm f/2 ZE Lens is the first photo lens with ARRI/ZEISS Master Prime optics from Hollywoods movie industry, enabling exceptionally selective focusing. Far superior in optical performance, even wide open, from infinity to the close-focus limit at half life size. Optical system of fantastic performance and long life full metal precision mechanics.
This is the magnifying factor of a lens. Macro lenses will often be described by their “magnification factor”. A lens with a 1:1 magnification factor produces a projected image on the sensor which is the same as the subject.
The individual pieces of glass that form the overall optical construction. Most lenses have between four and eleven elements to bend the light rays to ensure a perfectly formed image appears on the light sensitive surface, such as a film or CCD. The elements are arranged in groups and may be seen in specification sheets as, for example, 6 elements in 4 groups. That configuration may have two single elements and the other four grouped in pairs.
