Optimized for close-up shooting applications, the Apo-Macro-Sironar 120mm f/5.6 Lens from Rodenstock is specifically designed for enhanced performance when shooting between 1:5 and 2:1 reproduction ratios. Intended for use with film formats up to 4 x 5", this lens offers wide 70° covering power at 1:5 reproduction, along with a 201mm-diameter image circle, which increases to 55° and 374mm when working at a 2:1 magnification ratio. Featuring an apochromatic design, this lens also markedly reduces color fringing throughout the reproduction scale range for a high degree of color accuracy and image clarity.

Optimized for macro and close-up shooting with an ideal reproduction ratio range from 1:5 to 2:1:
  • 70° coverage angle and a 201mm image circle at 1:5
  • 60° coverage angle and a 277mm image circle at 1:1
  • 55° coverage angle and a 374mm image circle at 2:1
When working within the recommended aperture range of f/8 to f/11, the following movement ranges can be expected with 4 x 5" film:
  • At 1:5, up to 33mm of vertical movement and 28mm of horizontal movement
  • At 1:1, up to 77mm of vertical movement and 70mm of horizontal movement
  • At 2:1, up to 129mm of vertical movement and 121mm of horizontal movement
At magnifications 1:1 and greater, the lens can cover film formats larger than 4 x 5" with modest movements:
  • At a 1:1 scale, the lens can cover up to 5 x 7" format with 49mm of vertical movement and 39mm of horizontal movement
  • At a 2:1 scale, the lens can cover up to 8 x 10" format with 44mm of vertical movement and 37mm of horizontal movement; or 5 x 7" format with 106mm of vertical movement and 92mm of vertical movement
Mounted in a Copal #0 manual cocking shutter, which provides timed shutter speeds from 1/500 to 1 second, as well as bulb and time settings
