Master Macro 100 available now
For those who want the ultimate in image quality for table top cinematography, product shots, close-up inserts on feature films or any other applications that require a macro lens, the Master Macro 100 delivers images of breathtaking beauty.
Designed for the ANSI Super 35 image format, the Master Macro 100 can be used on any PL mount 35 mm film and single sensor digital camera.
With a 1:1 magnification ratio, a maximum aperture of T2.0 and an optical design developed specifically for macro work, the Master Macro delivers phenomenally sharp and contrasty images with vibrant colors for extreme close-ups of the highest visual quality.The use of aspherical lens surfaces and exotic glass types with anomalous partial dispersion, like fluor crown and barium dense flint, greatly reduces chromatic aberration (color fringes). Modern optical design techniques ensure the optimal light path for reduced stray light and mini- mized geometric distortion, another feature the Master Macro 100 shares with the Master Primes.
The front element of the Master Macro is set back within the lens housing, which protects it from the reflected light that can so often be a problem when lighting sub- jects positioned close to the front of a lens. In effect, the forward section of the lens acts as a shade, absorbing any stray light.
This, in combination with the T* XP anti-reflection coating, strategically painted lens rims and special light traps, means that cinematographers may spend far less time worrying about unwanted light on the image than with any other macro lens. It also means that the Master Macro 100 exhibits unsurpassed contrast, low veiling glare and rich, vibrant colors.
