  1. Great as always.. Sir do you also do lenses comparison? If yes, can you make a fujifilm 35mm f1.4 and fujifilm 35mm f2 comparison video? Thank you.

  2. 26cm minimum focus distance? Seems quiet a long way?
    I have a cheap macro adaptor for x mount. It allows auto focus which isn't required for macro however, the lens I use it with (18-55) isn't a nice manual focuser in my opinion, so is useful for that.

  3. Thank you for another enjoyable and informative video. I'm curious to know if you've tried any of the Fuji lenses with extension for macro work? P.S. I had to laugh at the 4:56 mark as I thought Kim had grown a small goatee but it's her earring on the far side! I hope she's not mad about that. Love all your videos!

  4. I find macro lenses the only type of lenses where manual focus only is not a problem. When I shoot macro, I always focus manually anyway. So, if anyone is scared by "MF only" – don't be.

  5. Short and beautiful review, as always.
    Does this lens come in some other mount too? I mostly use M43 cameras.
    Thanks in advance.

  6. 7Artisans makes great stuff. Their Leica M mount lenses are really good for getting into rangefinder photography. And since their lenses are based of the Zeiss Sonnar design the quality is quite good for the money.

  7. My girlfriend wanted to take some macro shots on her Panasonic GX80. I got an old El-Nikkor 50mm f/2.8 enlarger lens from eBay, an M39 to M42 ring and an M42 to mFT focusing helicoid. Amazing Image quality and no chromatic abberation, similar handling to any fully manual lens. For a lens more than 30-40 years old I don't think there's much better value for money out there than enlarger lenses 🙂 Only problem I could see is that you probably can't mount a lens hood.

  8. As always, informative. Question, please. I have a Sony A57 – forgive my amateur question – is this a solid choice over a Sigma or Tamron for investing in? Was at Ripley's Aquarium the other day and my kit lens clearly isnt enough for sharpness thru glass. Would this lens be too close as it is a macro? Or better to invest in the same length as the kit lens? I welcome your feedback. Thank you

  9. For greater depth of field you might want to try the Laowa 15mm f/4 Macro from Venus Optics, Hongkong – another fully manual lens. The wide angle will tend to include a lot more of the background in the frame – something that can be a disadvantage or an advantage depending on the circumstances. The depth of field for close-ups of small subjects is very impressive compared to all other macro lenses, and I find it really a breeze to work with in that respect. You will however mostly need to get the lens extremely close to the subject – almost touching it, preferably. So lighting the subject can occasionally be a little more challenging.

  10. Dude you always have great info it has helped me so much Marteen I have a question I received an SONY AX 53 as a gift recently but I want and need to have option of video light indoor outdoor thanks in advance
