Hey guys,

I just bought a Rokkor-X 50mm f1.7 and I am very happy with it!

Now I find myself wanting to buy a macro lens. I am looking at the Minolta lenses on eBay and they're all $75+! This is just a small hobby of mine, so I don't want to spend too much money on lenses.

Is there a cheaper variation of a macro lens that will work on the MD/MC - NEX adapter?

Consider a reverse ring, the quality can be very good even with the lens you have .

Less cumbersome would be a close-up filter; as you don't have the budget for a macro lens, and no experience, that should be just fine for your needs .
