  • You can increase the magnification ratio on any lens using extension tubes or by adding a diopter in front of the lens, something else to consider.

Extension tubes does not work very well with native lens, because you lose aperture control.

On e-mount lenses, aperture settings are retained when the lens is removed from the camera while the camera is on. Live view has to be on too.
