The MacroRing works like extensions tubes known from still photography. It increases the distance between the lens and the sensorplane (back focus) and reduces thus the Minimum Object Distance (MOD). The closer you can set the focus, the more magnification you get. You can easily mount it on any spherical PL mount lens.
A 50mm UltraPrime for instance has a MOD of ca. 50cm and the magnification at this distance is 1:7.8. The MacroRing shifts this to ca. 25cm - which is half of it and thus doubles the magnification factor. Technically speaking the magnification factor of a macro lens is bigger than 1:1.
With the MacroRing attached you can not focus the lens to infinity. The MacroRing is not meant to replace a real macro lens. It's more intended as tool the AC has in it's bag in the very likely case of unplanned close-up shots.
