Hi,

I would like to purchase a macro lens for my Nex-5. How good would vintage/legacy manual focus macro lenses be on the NEX as opposed to the AF SEL30M35?

What vintage/legacy manual focus macro lenses do you recommend? What about the following:

  • Canon FD 35-70 mm macro zoom lens
  • Canon FD 28-55 mm macro zoom lens
  • Canon FD 50 mm f3.5 macro

Sony Nex-5, 18-55mm Kit Lens

Most macro lenses can be good portrait lenses.

In order to help you, it is necessary that you explain what kind of macro photography you intend to produce... Flowers, insects, still objects ? What level of magnification are you expecting ?
