Macro on a budget - Sony A7rii with the 85mm F1.8 and Raynox 250 adaptor. ISO6400 shot, cropped and edited in post.

I mainly use M43 for my macro work but I'm trying to explore a setup where I am out with my Sony gear (which I mainly use for people shots) and a macro opportunity presents itself.

Will update the thread as I take more photos. Maybe even try it out with a flash.

Realised my Nissin i40 that I have for my M43 system works with my A7rii in manual mode. So tried a few shots. Cropped, but I'm happy with the results. More to come.

Very nice. I have a set of close-up lenses, which I once received as a bonus from Adorama, which will fit my Tamron 28-75mm f/2.8 lens (which has a pretty darn good close focusing capability without an additions). I have never tried these lenses but, I will see how they work. IMO, it would be easier to slip a closeup filter on the front of my lens when outdoors than it would be taking off the lens and adding an extension tube.

That's amazing. I'm so impressed by good macro work... and so lazy about actually going out, finding the subjects and doing it! :blush:
I wonder how this lens works with tubes. Because I have it. And them.
