Not macro

It can't be a macro anyway.
So many limited macro "wide-angle and normal" already I don't belive in one more star lens doing so

I doubt the seller even has it yet. Not necessarily a scam, but more of a "pre-order."

There is a spanish web store where one can find lenses 'in stock' a few weeks (sometimes months) before it is out of factory for real...
