Zeiss MakroPlanar 60mm C with Extension Tubes Bellows



Does the Makro-Planar 60 C work well with extension tubes? What about with the Auto Extension Bellows PC?

How well do standard Contax lenses (eg. 28mm, 50mm, and 85mm) function with these close-up accessories?

Thanks, Kim

> The 60 mm is great, although they do offer a model with 1:1 capability, I wouldn't use wide angle lenses with tubes due to curvature of field and working distances. Telephotos work better often reversed to get a good flat field. I have often used long lenses with a close up tube to shoot model composites and portraits. Good perspective, flat field and working distance.
