Macro with Marumi Achromat + AF-P DX 70-300mm on Z50
3

I've been exploring lightweight options for macro photography on the go, and have been enjoying my DX 85mm micro lens .

On a recent thread , RRowlett mentioned the Marumi Achromat Macro filters. Sounded interesting, so I ordered a Marumi DHG 330 (+3) Achromat Macro to use on my AF-P DX 70-300mm. It came today, so I took a break from work and went outside to test it out. Here are some quick jpegs from the camera. The initial results are promising! Not as good as a dedicated macro lens, but it gives some decent macro ability without having to carry an extra lens.

I also ordered a +5 diopter version which will arrive next week.

Magnification ~ 0.84 in this photo, almost at minimum focus.

It does pretty well with little bugs ...

and tiny flowers too.
