My Macro experiments....


Well-Known Member
Hi all, I try with an Old camera (Panasonic with Leica) adding single good lenses in front to make super near macros ...obviously not good for flys, bees etc...

Here I show you some samples ....I'm opening up old low cost lenses to use single good lenses to add on my Sigma 200mm or 400mm and see ...I will attach tests soon.

problem: a lot of glare effect around
