Re: Wide angle macro solution for DX body?
In reply to szhorvat, Jan 17, 2014

I have used the Sony 30mm macro lenses on NEX and SLT cameras. They do give a wide view but even at quite small apertures the background is still fairly blurred out when the focus is up close.

Here is a set on Flickr which may help your decision process.

I also recently begun to use the 40mm Nikon micro lens on my D3200 and V1 cameras:

Its a great lens but not really wide angle as you say.

An alternative may just be a wide angle lens?

Many are capable of quite close focusing - not macro - but close.
