    Comments about Leica APO-Macro-Summarit-S 120mm f/2.5 Lens:

    The resolution is outstanding, but there is more to this lens than mere "sharpness". Images show a micro-contrast, a three dimensionality that allows the viewer to literally "feel" the subject, to enter the image. Whether color or monochrome (B&W), the images have a draw or characteristic that is unique. The lens is extremely expensive and the images show why. While it is touted as a "macro" lens, it can be used for "general" photography as well. While it is an autofocus lens, it is extremely easy to focus manually, and I find I do so the majority of the time.
