  • Well made for a great price

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:

    Well made with metal lens and camera mount, locking pin. Geared rail for extension adjustment and scale on the other rail. Tripod mount underneath. Bellows material is cloth based not cheap plastic.

    Cons:

    No electrical contacts so you will have to set your f-stop with the lens on the camera, hold your DOF preview button to close down the app and remove the lens so it keeps it closed down. Can be hard to focus then due to low light levels.

    Bottomline:

    It is $40 so it is cheap as chips if you want to play with macro photography. Use a flash with a TTL cord close to the item for great light. Far better build quality then I expected for the price. Well worth buying to experiment with.
