Carefully designed to extend the short working distance of traditional 25mm lens in order to provide sufficient room for lighting hitting the subject. Operating within a 2.5:1 to 5:1 range, this lens has a minimum focus distance of just 6.8″ at the 5:1 magnification along with a comfortable 1.6″ working distance. (40mm @ 5:1 , 45mm @ 2.5:1)



Complementing the close-up capabilities, the optical design incorporates 8 elements in 6 groups  with a extra-low dispersion element to deliver an unprecedented corner to corner sharpness. The extra-low dispersion element reduces color fringing and chromatic aberrations for a high degree of clarity.
