Macro Lens for close-up and normal use ?
Aug 9, 2012

Hi All,

I have a quick question, I am interested in taking closeup shots of food with my NEX5N. And have been wondering what youd be the best alternative.

I have ordered E mount extension tubes on the bay to use with my non-macro lenses I have...
But I have been thinking of getting a proper macro lens to do the job.

I don't really know how the macro lens behave actually: is it solely for really tiny things like insects, etc.. or can it be used for larger subjects as a dish?

On top of that I know the Nikkor 55 2.8 is really sharp .. Will I be able to use it as a normal shart tele on the nex in replacement of my Rokkor 50 1.4 ?
