Incredible Close Up Macro - Sharp but short depth of field


Hard to light subject.
Short depth of field


Althought this is not the easiest lens to use, it is fascinating and fun.  4X to 4.5X macro with manual focus.  Front element is small.  Reminds you of a microscope lens.

Hard to use but it's fun!
