The lens is a hidden gem that loses a lot of attention to the also great 90mm G macro variant. If you need a primary macro for closer macro work (50 vs 90), or just want a macro on occasion, but at a lower cost and weight+size-in-bag, plus at a focal length that can serve as a common nifty-50 (at 2.
8) in non-fast moving situations too, pick this lens. It’s size, cost, and performance are excellent there. If you want more standoff macro distance and want a lens that can basically replace your 85 for professional quality portrait (at 2.
8), plus one that can handle video, midrange street, action, and lifestyle work, pick the 90 G. It’s AF, OSS, image quality and look are all stellar for those uses. For my own current needs, I’m keeping the 50 (I bought the rental).
Unrelated to the lens itself, the process of renting and corresponding with lensrentals. com was top-notch, as I’ve come to expect from them.
Macro photography can be a creative, educational and thoroughly enjoyable pursuit. The SEL30M35 has been designed to offer versatile, high-performance macro capabilities in a lens that is compact, lightweight and easy to use.
It is a true 1:1 macro lens with a 3. 84″ (9. 5cm) minimum focussing distance that allows tiny subjects and details to be rendered with excellent resolution and contrast. But it also functions as an excellent “normal” lens for day-to-day shooting, and a smooth, quiet internal lens drive system makes it suitable for shooting movies as well.
I wanted to try macro-photography, but I just wanted to see if it’s something I like. This lens isn’t expensive and is super sharp! You can get close to the subject and after you learned to work with it, you can make great pictures with it.
It’s a very great lens to start with macro-photography. There is only one little thing; the lens is quite short, so you must avoid working in your own shadow and watch out you don’t create a shadow while getting very close to the subject.
But you can work around that pretty easy. It’s also a great lens for portraits and landscapes. I use it on my A6000 and I would definitely recommend this lens.
First things first: -What we all call macro lenses are, with a couple exceptions, perhaps better named optically optimized close focus, (OOCF) if you will, because macro means larger than life (look it up).
So, 1:1 is the threshold of macro. This quibble brought to you by an old geez whose only other experience with a macro lens was the legendary but ineptly named Micro Nikkor back in the day. And it required an extension tube to get 1:1 reproduction.
Consider what follows with the above in mind. This lens is tiny, light, seems well-built, and sharp (bearing in mind that my only comparison is what the Nikkor could do on film stock, which I heard or read somewhere could capture about 12-14 Mp at its best).
But the tiny light part is somewhat negated by the tripod-ballhead-focusing rail-rail to hold the focusing rail and clamps to hold it all together setup required to keep the rig steady and in focus. I believe that’s why some have reported autofocus problems (at close focus distances DoF (that’s another thing; it should be depth of ACCEPTABLE focus, which in the old film days was much wider than with todays’ pixel-rich sensors)), even stopped-down is too thin to handhold.
Next; at stated 1:1 reproduction (stated close focus 3. 74), by my rough estimation puts your subject at a little more than 1/2 from the front of the lens. Nonetheless, for the money, this lens does what I want very well.
I don’t think there is anything out there that can touch it. Sony could probably reignite sales of this lens if they were to include a decent focusing hood for the monitor as an accessory for not too much more money.
Some reviews have mentioned this lens as a walkaround; I much prefer the pancake 16-50 kit lens for its size, framing choice (wide to tele), but mostly its low subject intimidation factor (most people think my a6300 is a point and shoot); not to mention low I’m going to assault him and take his expensive camera factor! In my neighborhood.
Venus Optics is offering photographers the first native option to get started in the world of wide-angle macro photography with the Laowa 15mm f/4 Macro Lens, available here for full-frame Sony E-mount cameras.
Before now, wide-angle macro required the use of extension tubes and other workarounds, but now the Laowa 15mm Macro offers true 1:1 magnification without the hassle. The ultra-wide perspective on full-frame cameras allows users to get exceptionally close to their subjects with a minimum focus distance of just 4.
7″, and have them fill the frame, while still capturing the background for more informative scenes. Internal focusing further assists by not disturbing your subject, even when you reach the 0. 2″ minimum working distance.
Optically, it is designed to minimize distortion that plagues wide-angle lenses with the use of an advanced 12 element in 9 group construction with one extra-low dispersion and three high-refractive elements.
A multi-layer low-reflective coating further improved image quality by reducing the appearance of flare and ghosting. Also, when used on APS-C cameras, or in crop modes, the lens offers +/- 6mm of vertical shift which can help correct for perspective when shooting objects such as buildings.
Full manual operation is required with this lens through the use of a physical aperture ring with a range of f/4 to f/32 and a large focusing ring. A flat front element provides room for a 77mm front filter thread for using a selection of specialized filters to enhance your scene.
Additionally, it has a near circular 14-blade diaphragm for smooth out of focus elements and comes with a lens hood.
First, I’m not a professional photographer or lens tester. However, it’s pretty well known that for the sharpest images from a wide lens stay towards the middle of f stops and the middle of the lens.
This lens is no different. I like that it’s entirely manual (aperture and focus) because it forces you to slow down and get your settings right. I always use a tripod with a macro lens because I can’t keep my body still enough to achieve consistent focus.
Do these things and you’ll get good images from this lens. The build quality of this lens is very good with the exception of the shifting mechanism. It’s awkward to push the little tab in while physically moving the lens up or down.
It takes some practice to get the feel of how it locks into place. It either shifts up, down or middle with no in between positions. While it’s generally thought to use a shifting lens in architecture photography to correct for parallax distortion, perhaps some clever lens designer realized it too can be used to achieve interesting angles in macro photography albeit there is no tilt feature.
My sense is the shift feature was thrown in as a low cost after thought. But it works. All in all, this is a really cool lens and I’m glad I bought it. I plan on having a lot of fun with it for years to come.
It features a magnification range from 0. 1x to 2x, making this lens ideally suited for rapidly changing macro photography scenarios without using any extension tube. The wide magnification range is very useful for shooting macro objects with different sizes.
The lens is also designed for normal shooting purposes with a 60mm focal length, providing an all-in-one solution for normal portrait shooting as well as ultra-macro photography. Also, the enclosure of the lens is made of metal to strengthen its durability.
All-in-One Solution. The lens is designed for normal shooting purposes with a 60mm focal length. It is an all-in-one solution for normal portrait shooting as well as ultra-macro photography. Advanced Optics.
The Venus Optics lens houses 9 elements in 7 groups with patented optical structure to provide great deal of image clarity and color rendering. The optical system consists of 2 major moving lens groups in order to minimize the barrel distortion.
14 aperture blades form a close-to-circular aperture, capable of creating creamy shallow depth of view.
This is a solid piece of optics and a lot of fun if you have time and patience. The 2:1 works well with the usual challenges of macro photography. However, one has to be aware that this lens is fully manual in every respect, there is no communication between the lens and the camera whatsoever.
On the plus-side, this being an all-metal construction, it sort of gives a back-to-the-basics feeling. At least on a Nikon, the lens always sends an aperture of f2. 8 to the camera, no matter what aperture is actually chosen.
Since you also always look through the chosen aperture (there is no automatic snap aperture), that is logical and works well in aperture-priority or manual mode. Of course, the viewfinder gets rather dark at closer apertures.
The 1-star-less-than-5 is because an automatic aperture and a communication of aperture-values could have been implemented fully mechanically with no need for CPUs or electronic connectors – at least the pro-level Nikons still support those old-style mechanical connectors, so it would have been a quick win.
BTW, if you wonder where the promised UV-filter is: it comes screwed on from the manufacturer, which is good, since otherwise the somewhat unique retracting inner lens barrel would collect dust and debris in no time.
But no, it’s not missing, it’s just already installed.
The wide-angle design means much greater depth of field at close distances than possible with conventional telephoto macro lens, so more background details can now be seen. The front barrel of the lens is waterproof and a LED ring light is mounted at the tip of the lens.
It can cover both standard 35 mm full frame & Super35 image sensors and is super lightweight to carry!.
The Sigma Art line lenses prioritize optical performance above all else in their design. This applies to the 105mm F2. 8 DG DN MACRO,Art, which produces outstanding rendering performance from the center of the frame all the way up to the edges.
It excellently handles comatic aberration, which often happens at the edges. On the other hand, its abilities to minimize ghosting and flare, which have been validated through rigorous testing from.
The full-frame 90mm medium telephoto macro E-mount lens features built in image stabilization for sharp, clear images at up to 1:1 magnification, even when shooting handheld. Advanced optics and coatings with a 9-blade circular aperture deliver exceptionally smooth bokeh that G Lenses are renowned for.
Sharp in-focus rendering is achieved with a floating focus mechanism that suppresses aberration equally at all focusing distances, whether the subject is far away or extremely close. Other advanced technologies, such as the Nano AR Coating and Super ED (extra-low dispersion) glass, elevate overall performance to an extremely high standard.

Reviews From Real Customers
I think most know this is one of the highest performing lenses in the E-Mount system. It’s what you expect out of a 1:1 macro. The handling is excellent with the focus clutch system, so it automatically goes from what AF distance was to where it’s physically set in MF.
Autofocus is not the best in the system, but I think good for a macro. I have a 50 mm F2. 8 macro FE version, and the AF on that is much slower. FE90 will absolutely do the job for portraits, but obviously not useful for sports or wildlife (not sure why you’d use it for those anyways).
For kids running around, it’s good enough for me. I will say there is a whining noise, particularly when you switch from AF to MF and vice versa. I haven’t tested it, but it sounds loud enough to hear in video.
The whining is very high pitched, and doesn’t sound like the usual ‘grinding’ sound of motors; it’s almost like it’s an electrical coil whine. One thing I’d like to mention is the rendering and contrast are excellent.
I’m pitting it against the Sony 85mm f1. 8 FE and the colors straight out of the camera are more pleasant, and overall the contrast is great. I’ve always liked the 85mm f1. 8, but if you don’t need the additional stop and you’re not shooting super quickly, the 90mm can indeed double as a portrait lens.
The Tokina FiRIN 100mm F2. 8 FE MACRO is a versatile mid-range auto-focus telephoto lens with excellent close focusing capabilities reaching life-sized (1:1) reproduction at 11. 8 inches (30cm) from the sensor plane.
Engineered for Sony full-frame E-mount mirrorless cameras the lens transmits all necessary data to take full advantage of Sony’s in camera features including 5-axis image stabilization, MF assist functions, auto image enlargement, focus peaking, and electronic distance bar.
At (1:1) reproduction, the lens provides a very comfortable 4. 5 inches of working distance between the front of the lens and your subject. The fast f/2. 8 aperture makes it easy to focus in low light and renders soft beautiful bokeh.
Making it an excellent choice for portraits, landscapes, video, and small world photography. The Tokina FiRIN 100mm F2. 8 FE MACRO is a “flat-field” optical design that suppresses the field-of-view curvature to zero.
This means the lens yields excellent edge-to-edge sharpness at all focus distances and apertures. The lens’ multi-coatings render natural color with extremely low light falloff, perfectly controlled chromatic aberration, flare and ghosting.
Get up close and personal with the 1:1 magnification ratio of the full-frame compatible FE 90mm f/2. 8 Macro G OSS Lens for Sony’s E-mount cameras. As a G series lens, it perfectly balances sharpness and bokeh through the use of various specialized elements, this ensures highly detailed images, with smooth out-of-focus areas, and an absolute minimum of aberrations.
The lens also boasts a fast f/2. 8 aperture for controlling depth of field and working in less-than-ideal light as well as a Nano AR coating that help eliminate ghosting and flare. Critical to macro is accurate focusing, which is assisted by the speedy Direct Drive Super Sonic wave Motor present in the 90mm lens.
Users also have direct access to a focus hold button and focus range limiter for further optimizing the lens’ performance in certain situations. On top of this, the focusing ring slides for immediate switching between manual and auto focusing.
And, the lens has built-in Optical SteadyShot image stabilization for compensating for camera shake at all focusing distances.
Lens is so sharp it cuts like a knife. This is one of the many reasons to get into the Sony system, The lenses are tack sharp and there is no huge delineation like Canons L series lenses versus the other lenses whose front comes out which is really annoying.
Honestly the normal Sony lenses are Z‘s branded and they are just as good often times as the G master lenses. During the Nikon D4 days that was a 4 megapixel camera. Between the Canon R5 and the Sony A7siii I get equally as good prints (and better in mine images) on a the BSI 12 megapixel sensor of the A7siii.
The lenses are so sharp and the images are so good that it’s incredible. If you really care about megapixels you could have both the low light king A7siii and the A7iv or A7riv – Canon has nothing like this.
The new R3 is great yet in low light it’s not even close.
Take incredible close-up and bokeh shots with Sony’s stunning prime lens. As the large f/2. 8 maximum aperture gives you awesome depth-of-field control, the telephoto 90mm focal length will deliver super-zoom to your snaps.
To make sure every pixel is pin-sharp, this lens has a floating focus mechanism to deliver superior snaps every time. This even has Sony’s Optical SteadyShot built-in, to crack down on handshake blur.
Brilliant Bokeh & Macro Shots Crack beautiful bokeh and pin-sharp close-ups with this lens’ fixed 90mm focal length. The f/2. 8 maximum aperture deliver the smooth and expressive bokeh effects that G lenses are famous for, while the 0.
28m minimum focus distance gives magnificent macro shots. Topped off with floating focus mechanism, every detail of your shots will look unbelievable Crystal-Clear Optics Made of one aspherical element, one ED glass element and one Super ED glass element, shooting is smooth and sharp.
Also, with the Dual DDSSM (Direct Drive Super Sonic Wave Motor), element groups get the whip-smart focus speed needed for speedy macro photography. If that wasn’t enough, the rounded aperture gives pleasing bokeh effects and robust optical control.
Optical SteadyShot Optical SteadyShot is Sony’s Image Stabiliser, and this lens has it built-in. Levelling out blur when shooting by hand, you’ll shoot sharp pictures without needing to set-up a tripod.
This is especially perfect for making movies at sports events or when nature-watching. Hardy, Lightweight Build Not only is this lens lightweight, it’s dust and moisture resistant. This way, you’ll be able to take it anywhere and snap pictures in the harshest conditions.
Super compact and super close focusing, the Laowa 85mm f/5. 6 2x Ultra Macro APO, from Venus Optics, is a short-tele prime offering an impressive 2:1 reproduction ratio for high-magnification macro shooting.
Beyond close-focusing, high-magnification performance, this Sony E-mount lens is also distinguished by its sleek and lightweight design and its ability to focus to infinity, making it a versatile choice for walk-around use and portrait subjects, as well.
Close-Up Shooting with 2x Maximum Magnification This lens’s calling card is its 2:1 maximum magnification ratio, which permits photographing at greater-than-life-size scale with a minimum focusing distance of 6.
4″. Not limited to just specialized close-up applications, the lens also focuses to infinity, making it a versatile choice for both macro and portraiture subjects. Apochromatic Optics The optical layout includes three extra-low dispersion (ED) glass elements, which greatly reduce chromatic aberrations and color fringing for high color accuracy and clarity.
This apochromatic design is especially beneficial when working throughout the focusing range for accurate and consistent color with both close-up and distant subjects. Compact and Portable Design Compared to conventional macro lenses, this lens has an especially sleek and lightweight design.
Modest f/5. 6 maximum aperture contributes to the sleek form factor. Designed for full-frame Sony E-mount mirrorless cameras, this lens is also suitable for APS-C-format cameras and provides a 127. 5mm-equivalent focal length.
Manual focus operation is benefitted by an internal focusing design that maintains the overall lens length during operation for easier positioning at close-range.

I bought this phone in May 2020, since I have the phone I noticed that the camera was a bit slow, but I thought it was normal. The problem escalated until after a picture taken the phone was getting slow, hot and increment the battery consumption.
Also, sometimes the camera app crashes and it is not possible to use it until the phone is restarted. I use the phone for work and I need a camera and reliability, I am not having any of this. On the other hand, to be fair the phone is fast, light and have plenty of features, including very loudly speaker, last long battery and amazing screen.
Finally, even though the guidelines say that I shouldn’t writing about customer service, I believe that this should be part of the phone. I waited more than 20 days to have my phone back (working properly), no loan phone while the repairing and they gave me back the phone two times with the same issue.
I am still waiting for the phone. Also, I was said that it may be a software issue, that means that all S20+ must be facing the same problem.
Recently I have gotten into 35mm film photography and I needed a method to digitize my film. I wasn’t happy with the image quality provided by Plustek and Epson scanners, so I have settled on DSLR scanning method.
I already had my Fuji X-T3 and this lens seems to be a much cheaper alternative to Fuji’s own macro lenses, while the reviews praised its optical qualities. I can confirm, optically this lens is excellent.
I do not do any macro work, I only use it to digitize my film negatives. For that purpose it works, but I am only giving it 3 stars because of the following problems: first, the focus ring is to sensitive.
Achieving perfect focus is extremely tricky even at f/8, you have to learn how to rotate the focus ring by a tiny fraction of one millimeter (yes, it’s that extreme). The second problem with this lens is the lack of a tripod collar, which makes the camera quite unstable when on a tripod.
And finally, this lens is not a true Fuji-X lens. It’s simply too heavy, i. e. it’s a full-frame lens with all full-frame problems such as bulk and weight, it’s just adapted to Fuji mount. I find it borderline deceptive: I use Fuji’s X-mount for compactness, why on earth would i want a full-frame lens on it? I am keeping it only because it’s just a film scanner.
Get up close and personal with the 1:1 magnification ratio of the full-frame compatible FE 90mm f/2. 8 Macro G OSS Lens for Sony’sE-Mount mirrorless cameras. Optimized for macro shooting, this medium telephoto lens utilizes an aspherical element along with extra-low dispersion and super extra-low dispersion glass in order to create sharp imagery with minimal aberration.
Also, it has a Nano AR Coating that suppresses reflections and allows for efficient light transmission for clear photographs. Its maximum aperture of f/2. 8 is effective when shooting in low light and allows for shallow depth-of-field focus.
An internal focus system in which only the middle optical groups move when focusing provides fast autofocus action and a short minimum focus distance of 11″. Also, the lens does not extend when focusing and the front end does not rotate.
The Direct Drive Super Sonic Wave AF motor employs piezoelectric elements oscillating at ultrasonic frequencies to drive the focus lens with accuracy and near-silence. The focus ring slides back and forth to select manual or auto focus and with a focus hold button and focus limiter switch, the lens offers precise control of where you place focus.
An optical image stabilization system uses gyro sensors to detect camera movement and quiet linear motors to shift the stabilization lens for blur control that is very helpful when shooting macro and/or in low light.
Nine circular aperture blades create a unique diaphragm design that is almost perfectly circular throughout its aperture range and thus helps to create pleasing out-of-focus highlights. Finally, a handsome and sturdy build with a dust and moisture resistant design contributes to the overall quality and durability of this fine optic.

Got the Z-mount type of this lens for the Z50. Great lens overall with a few shortcomings, but for the price, you can’t go wrong, especially if delving into macro for the first time. The image quality is really good, no issues that I could find.
I was able to get the 1x magnification at 17. 5 cm as promised, adding extension tubes of a total of 29 mm extension brought the image to roughly 2x magnification at about the same focus distance as 1x, which makes this much more versatile for Macro.
The build quality is really nice, all metal and sturdy, a bit heavier than you’d expect from such a small lens. The mount has the largest diameter, with the lens becoming narrow very quickly, a big plus.
The lens itself is small, which is great, only becomes longer if you decide to use extension tubes. There are a few things that I did not like too much. Firstly, the aperture ring not being stepped, continuous instead, I found to be a bit annoying, as it leads to sometimes accidentally changing aperture or not really knowing what aperture you’re at until you check up on it.
The focus ring is very big, takes up a large portion of the lens, would not be an issue if the focus felt more defined, but right now it feels like it slips a bit, and it is easy to change by trying to change something like the aperture or simply holding the lens.
Finally, the lens cap is not bad for now, but it is made of metal, it is heavy and I could see it losing grip after a while, but replacement caps should be easy to come by. Finally, this might not be as much as a con for most people, the focus positions between 1 meter and infinity are close to each other, and while this lens takes great non-macro shots (portraits for example), it is very easy to not be properly focused, which is made worse by the focus ring.
The 60 mm focal length is a great for most macro situations. You need a steady hand and high shutter speed to get good pictures at this focal length.
The lightweight and compact Sony E Mount 30mm f/3. 5 Macro Lens is an APS-C format lens with a 35mm field of view equivalent of 45mm. It also performs well under low-light settings due to its f/3. 5 maximum aperture.
Constructed with 7 lens elements in 6 groups, it features Aspherical Lens Elements that help reduce spherical and chromatic aberration. You can also get clear shots via the Direct Manual Focus for images as well as the Smooth Operation for Video.
Meanwhile, the 0. 12x maximum magnification ratio and 0. 095m minimum focusing distance is a dependable combination for superb photos of small subjects. Amazing bokeh effects can also be achieved through the seven-blade circular diaphragm.
