UCL-05LF +6 Macro Lens

http://www.fantasea.com/LensesJan2017/PR_UCL05LF_MSRP.htm

UCL-05LF is a quality wet macro lens with a +6 diopter.

High Optical Performance

UCL-05LF is a super sharp lens which consists of quality AR (anti-reflection) multi-layered precision optic elements (4 elements organized in 3 groups). Images captured with the lens are detailed and extremely sharp on the corners. Professionally engineered elements eliminate chromatic aberration and the AR coating on all glass elements assists in avoiding undesired reflections from the sun or artificial light sources.

Durable Construction

Lens barrel is made from durable Aluminum alloy with black hard coating. This coating protects the exterior of the lens, protecting it from easily getting scratched or damaged. During development, the lens was thoroughly tested in extreme conditions (depth, temperature, salinity and radiation) to ensure resistance and durability on the long run.

Universal Compatibility

The lens features a 67mm thread mount, compatible with most housings available in the market today. Perfect to be used with compact or mirrorless housings. The base of the mount features a narrow design, allowing to use the lens with most lens holders, adaptors, bayonet mount converters, flip mounts and quick release adaptors.

Stack & Enhance

A front 67mm thread allows for stacking additional macro lenses and/or color correction filters on the lens.

Accessory Package

Lens comes with a secure strap and quick release secure line to ensure the lens is safely secured to the system even when removed from the housing lens port. Velcro secure strap enables mounting and dismounting the lens without having to detach it from the housing system. Non corrosive front and rear lens caps are included in the box. A padded carrying case allows safe storage and transportation.

Warranty & Best Service

The lens includes warranty against defective materials and workmanship under reasonable use for a period of 1 year. In addition, Fantasea offers a professional and responsive service program.
