Key features

In macro photography what really matters is the resolving power of a lens. Besides working distance is always an issue. Makro-Planar T* 100mm f2 is a lens where Zeiss addressed both of these issues. The 100mm focal length gives the ideal working distance that most photographers need while doing macro. And the incorporation of fast F2 aperture with superior optical design takes care of the lens resolution. Ultimately they came up with a lens that has outstanding performance and excellent resolving power even when shot wide open, with undistorted edge to edge sharp image.
