Somebody Has A New Macro Lens!

Ok, so for a couple of weeks now I have been looking at pictures taken with converted macro lenses. These are not just regular off the shelf macro lenses, these are converted 35-80mm lenses. As it turns out if you simply take out the front group of elements the lens suddenly becomes a ridiculously close macro lens. And I do mean RIDICULOUSLY close.

Here is the full frame version of the first shot that I took with this lens
(hand held, not the best light, suffering slightly from camera shake)

35-80mm Super Macro

And here is the 100% crop (click for full size image).

I am LOVING this new lens 🙂
