p.2 #1 · p.2 #1 · Got Suggestions or Stay with Fuji 60mm Macro Lens?


I'm using an excellent vintage "Bokina" lens for macro. Full manual, but so good. Vivitar Series 1 90mm f/2.5 VMC with its dedicated 1:1 adapter as needed (without the adapter it does 1:2)

My lens mount version is Olympus OM, so I also have a set of vintage OM extension tubes. Here's a combination of tubes + that lens:

And here's the lens as is without any adapter/tubes:

CA is very low even on shiny objects:

I'm curious about the Samyang / Rokinon 100mm f/2.8 macro lens. That one is internally focusing kind though, unlike mine, so focal length becomes shorter as you focus closer.

Macro, Cheryle. Thanks!


I know this may sound quite strange, as I have and have had all types of
macro lenses for my Nikons, but on Fuji I find the 18 f/2 better, for me, than
my 60 f/2.4...

I have the lester dine 105, Nikon 200 micro, Nikon 70-180, Tamron 180 macro,
55 af micro...and probably some others... but with the Fuji I wanted to
stay as lightweight as possible. I could add an adapter and use any of these,
but then I lose my lightweight advantage...

This is one I got Oct 1 with the X-T1 and 18 f/2 SOOC cropped and resized
