Re: G1 with legacy lenses for macro
In reply to geoffrey_packer, Nov 30, 2011

This old thread of mine shows some sample macro shots using three different true legacy macro lenses (Canon 50, Vivitar 55 and Vivitar 90) as well as a standard legacy 50 with "close up filters" (plenty of these sets available on eBay).


None of these require extension tubes (the Canon 50 does if you want true 1:1, but usually comes with it).

I have a set of Canon bellows too, which is great for fine control of camera positioning, but overkill for getting started. Start with any reasonably stable tripod.

I own the Industar 55/2.8 as well, but I've never tried to use it for macro work as I don't have an M39 extension tube or a reversing adapter that small.
