Re: Macro lens?

What do you consider a true macro lens?

It has 1:1 reproduction, does that mean it meets your criteria?

For me it does -- 0.5x reproduction for me is not "true macro" but 1:1 does for me. Although I'd love 2x reproduction but I guess that for that I'll add extension rings at some point.

If 1:1 reproduction rate is not good enough for you then there are manual focus macro lenses from Laowa of course which have 2x reproduction rates or more
