I'm thinking of purchasing the Fuji and was wondering what lense(s) you guys are using for macro photography. Thanks in advance.

On camera directly:

Contax 645 Zeiss Apo-Makro-Planar 4/120 via a manual iris EF adapter to a Cambo EF-GFX Adapter

I’m going to get the Fuji GF 4/120 Almost-A-Macro & 45mm extension ring soon though as I want to try in-camera stacking which requires AF drive.

With body attached to the technical camera I have a few lenses which I’ll be paring down to one or two mainly for 4x5 but secondarily for digital:

Schneider-Kreuznach Makro-Symmar 5.6/80 (new)

Schneider-Kreuznach M-Componon 4/80

Plus a couple of non APO Rodagons, Componon-S, etc etc.  It’s a bad habit I’m going to quit.  I’ve stopped chasing MTFs and resolution tests etc lately because I don’t take pictures of line charts or semiconductors. Mostly florals and natural elements with organic structures.

I also have my eyes set on a Sigma 2.8/180 Apo DG OS with a Techart Adapter.
