I have to ask you a really dumb question. :)

1/ If you heard and understand that this 100 2.8 macro lens is a "miracle
and one of a kind lens"  Why would you ask "how it is at infinity?"

Apart from this lens being one of the flagship lenses of the whole Leica
lens making establishment, I can only say it is awesome wherever you focus!

From as ar as you can see to as close as you can get.

And with the 2X it is still incredible with or without the Apo 2X or the
old one.

I trust this is helpful and you buy one, as I use mine for all kinds of
picture taking from scenics to macros of bugs, to people, you name it.
