Found this weird contraption

Anybody here who knows what is going on and what the stuff is? I see some stacked UV-filters and what appears to be a converter of some kind.

It's a Sony E macro lens, with loads of filters and what looks like a mirror extender??

The result of using such a thing:

I dont get it myself, better donate those UVs or whatever filters then switch to 30mm macro, those CA are just unbearable

I see at least two step-up rings, and it looks like they're got the hood on as well.

I think the outermost thingie is one of the so called 'creative' filters which were all the rage in the '70s & '80s. I think it is slightly frosted glass to create an OOF effect but with a hole in the middle for an in focus centre. The sort of thing we use a lensbaby for nowdays.

Back to lurking.

Seems to be a pretty messy way of getting a toy cam look then? On a NEX-7 of all the nexes.
