    Everyone is asleep and of course I have to take a few Macro shots of the Mother's Day Flowers.

    I decided to see what the various lenses could produce on the A6000.


    First off, I busted out the 50mm Minolta Macro, fully 1:1

    Then I decided to try out the 50mm SEL with 16+10mm Extention tubes. I don't know what the exact 1:? is with this setup, but it is not quite as close.

    Finally I thought, let's try the 20mm SEL with the same two extension tubes.

    Getting my Oil & Filter changed so it's hard to be sure looking on my iPhone, but #3 strikes me with its overall eye appeal

    I actually dimmed them a bit as the originals were too bright. Maybe I went too far?


    Thanks.

    Interesting comparo. The 20mm did better than I would've expected.
