Sigma 17-70 f2.8-4.5 Macro lens ( 1:2 ) with +4 close up filter

Sigma 17-70mm F2.8-4.5 DC Macro Lens Reviews - Sigma Lenses - Pentax Lens Review Database This one ....

Now the pictures are + a (+4) close up filter ...

I wanted to see if the +4 close up filter would make the lens more 1:1

Its a dark wet day , Camera is my K5 ...
Images have only been re sized , no PP ...

Last two images , the close up filter is actually pressed up against the bottom of each leaf ...
Yeah , looks like the lens will focus to contact now
Also you can pull back a reasonable distance , sorry didnt see how much exactly , and auto focus is working fine ...

Just need some nice weather ..

To get a sense of scale I used a Canadian dollar :

This is about as close as you can get @ 17mm

And @ 70mm ( About 10mm here , I could get closer , but Im blocking the light )

Images were re sized only , no cropping no PP

Unfortunately this lens is already listed in the database index.

You should have put your images in this thread.

There is only one thread per lens for the index to work
