ELICAR V-HQ Macro MC 90mm f/2.5

Fantastic lens - just be careful in back-light situations.

1:1 possible without additional lenses/converters. Also marketed under the Soligor brand.

Here are some more photos from this fantastic lens. Go get one.

It's a f/2.5 lens, but it is reporting f/2.4 on the camera?!

That's normal -- the 'A' contacts don't cover every single possibility, so you just get "close enough" with some lenses. It is probably really a f/2.8 lens anyway...

Well, actually, when I change from 2.5(2.4) to 2.8 also camera suggests for shutterspeed 1/200 insteadof 1/250. Same point, on tripod. ? Dunnoabout that then.
