High-qulity leneses are normally expected to yield sharp, crisp images. For some applications, however, - for example in portrait shots - a softer luminous rendering is preferred over faithful detail sharpness. This Imagon lens with a focal lenght of 120 mm meets this need for the Hasselblad user in a very special way.
It does not produce the blurred images typical for incorrect focusing or poor quality lenses. It rather overlays a clearly defined image core with delicate diffusion controlled by adjustable push-on perforated diaphragms. By spreading highlight outlines into the shadows, the Imagon softens the hard definition, yielding portrait or landscape effects that range from a slightly flattering rendering to dreamy, romantic moods.
