Definition of Macro Lens
6 months ago

According to Digital Camera World, "The official definition of a macro lens is that it should be able to reproduce a life-sized image of an object on the recording medium..."

Keeping in mind that macro lens and macro photography are defined separately, do you agree the above definition is the definition for macro lens? (Let's not quibble about whether or not it is the "official" definition. I think it is safe to say there is no "official" definition).
