    Well I've been playing around with the nex5R and the Industar-50 50mm f/3.5, using some extension tubes, although it was a bit late so I've only done some shots test.
    I have not even used a tripod would have been more useful, only a small PP in LR, a bit of contrast and color,the photos were not cropped.
    I'm not an expert on macro, so any advice would be very useful.

    Pretty good results. How much extension did you use?

    Normal lenses don't have the resolution of real macro lenses but results can be quite good. Probably cheapest solution for macro work is to use Vega-11 enlarging lens. The real problem is to find m39 extension tubes for these.

    Last one has a nice combination of sharpness and flare. Pretty cool!
