Flower with reverse 28mm
Posted By: zeek10d, 06-27-2008, 04:38 AM

The reverse k mount > 52mm adapter came yesterday, so bring the K10D out to test it with old Sigma 28mm f2.8 Mini Wide II. Since I'd haven't done floral macros in abt 1 yr, so I made this the theme for the test. Think I'm pretty rusty^^;

Wow! They're all nice, but that 2nd shot is REALLY good! If that's what you do when you're "rusty", I'm really looking forward to what you do when you get it together.

Oh I so need to get one of those. Your old Sigma, is it fully manual lens? I have an old old Cosina 28mm f2.8 that might be similar.

Nice photos. And bad me, I just added another thing to my"need" list

Thx. I used to be able to focus in the dark better (due to reverse lens), so some shots are a bit OOF. Also I used to be able to bring out texture on petals better like what I did with 2nd shot. So I'm rusty^^;

Thx. I use an old MF Sigma 28mm f2.8 mini wide II. Think u can just use any 28mm as most of these old primes are gd^^

I just looked on Adorama and they're about $15ish (US) there, and they have a couple different sizes. BH didn't seem to have them. What a bargain for such a cool effect.

It's a cheap way to get extreme macros^^ It's a pity Pentax don't have any macro lens bigger than life size...
