Tried the M*300/4 on the Pentax Q.The first one was captured by Samsung Phone (cropped) for comparison. The family was near the circle in the photo but moved away when I took the comparison photo.
Impressive! What aperture?

Hensoldt Wetzlar Portable Microscope s.nr 9377

(And now in the correct thread...)

I don't know if this should be called adapted or not and I have not found any info on this microscope. Still this may be interesting to someone and many already got the adapter called "01 Prime".

My father showed me an old microscope that was used to examine cracks in metal at his workplace a long time ago. It is really clear when looked through with the eyes and seems to ave an magnification of 20X and an adjustible micrometre scale. I tried it out with the Q body but didn't get it to work but with the 01 Prime it's just to put the lens to the eyepiece. Sadly there is some field curvature and distorsion with that combo but sharpness in the center is really good!

The extremely simple setup



Close-up of a label without the micrometer scale.

Close-up of a small aquarium floating plant with a slightly misfocused micrometer scale. 3D objects like this needs stacking I guess.



Do you want crops? I may switch out the pics if I get better ones.

Just received this M39 Industar 61 LD f:3.5 / 55mm from a seller in the Ukraine. (308mm equiv. on the Q) Tried it out today, and preliminary results look pretty awesome. Zero PF even wide open, and crisp IQ with excellent colors. Nice bokeh, too. I'm going to take some more shots with it tomorrow, (I'll post 'em too.) but from what I've seen so far, I'm expecting this one to be magic on the Q.

It also looks like it was made for the Q.

Oh, how much did it cost you? I want something similar for my Q and as a tiny macro (the flange focal distance) for the K-5.
