DA15 + Raynox 150
Feb 24, 2012

Having recently gotten a DA15, I decided to see what it would do with the Raynox 150 close-focus filter. This was just a fun excercise, and I didn't bother to mount it on a tripod. So these are all handheld at 0.3 seconds, and therefore are not sharply in focus. But they at least give an idea of field of view and depth of field. Not sure how useful this is, but I thought it was kind of interesting anyway.

First, here is the minimum focus distance without the Raynox:

Now with the Raynox on. Since it uses a 43mm filter thread, it gives heavy vignetting uncropped:

Cropping down to the largest useful 3:2 rectangle, I got this:

For reference, here is the same shot with DA-L 35 + Raynox.

And the same shot with DA70 + Raynox.
