This Old Lens: Introducing Frankenmacro (Tale of a $34 A7 macro contraption.)

Scroll down to content


Minolta MD 50mm f/1.7 (Free as a gift) + Vivitar MD 2x macro converter ($19 from B&H Photo Video) + MD to E Mount Adapter ($14 from Amazon) = $34 Sony A7 Frankenmacro

Frankenmacro, an A7, a flash w/ diffuser and these are the first test shots. I previously owned an MFT Olympus macro lens, a Samsung NX macro lens (both costing a fair coin) and I must say this budget concoction holds it’s own.
