Guess the lens

I've just recently started to use this new lens set-up. Ii's a bit unusuall but quite effective.

I intentionally removed the exif data during the resizing of the photos. Not other modification was  done, theye are straight out of camera jpegs.

Guess the lens I used:

Cheers

It obviously is a lens that can focus very closely,  often called a macro lens.

There are hundreds or thousands of these out there. Who would care to guess, and we even do not know the camera that was used. Useless post, sorry.

I'm going with that being a wide angle on a close focus adapter?

Am I warm?

Actually cold, but regarding the concept, warm.

Adapter is included.

No, but it would have similar effect I guess, but it wouldn't be that wide.

So, if i guess the lens, do i get a prize or something? You posted with this "contest" just to get clicks Just name the lens and get it over with, this is boring. Nothing special about the photos either, this could be taken with anything...

Sorry

So Im willing to guess they where taken on a 10-18 zoom with extention tubes.

By the way I find them fairly interesting & dont believe they could have been taken with just anything,but it must be a lens that has EXIF data.With a bit of PP I think these are worthy of public view ,dont be put off by the grumps.

Re: Guess the lens

A combo I was going to try anyway, so I had it in mind.

- The Sony E 30/3.5 macro lens fitted with the Sony VCL-ECU1 0.75X Ultra Wide Converter.

There are thousands of "usual" lenses that work on a NEX-5 and you want us to guess an unusual set-up based on low-resolution images... there's a much better chance of guessing your birthday -- and I've been doing some lens forensics work. Getting more technical about it, there is a lot of DoF and there isn't a lot of focus blur, but the OOF PSF looks fairly circular with a moderately bright edge. Both suggest a retrofocal wide angle is most likely.

In fact, it looks pretty kit zoomish to me. Maybe with a +1 close-up lens or similar, but the focus isn't really all that close (that spider is big, judging by the flies). Certainly, although the photos are fine, whatever lens configuration you used did not result in anything all that distinctive. Hope it didn't cost you much....

Then, don't comment it. Or show your more special photos taken with anything.

Sure, the "should I buy this camera to abandon my xy system topics are more interesting.

Almost. We are very close.

24mm + Raynox 150?

Zeiss 24mm + Raynox 150 to get close.  Just guessing here.

It was taken in Germany so it's not a huge spider, maybe 2 cm length of the body and flies are fruitflies (as far I can judge) so they were tiny.

No, this wouldn't be that close

Captura was almost correct.
