'T' with Canon FD 200mm Macro Lens

Recommended Posts

Q&D pic taken with D-Lux 5 showing my 'T' hitched up to a 30 year old Canon FD 200mm Macro Lens.

 

Combination had just been used to photograph the shark tooth fossil in the foreground. Lens attached via JinFinance FD to M adaptor plus Leica M to T adaptor. 

 

The 200m lens is a bit of an overkill for indoor use but it focuses to 1:1 on FF and 1.5:1 mag. on APS-C. For photomacrography 'in the field' it has a very advantageous long working distance i.e. 0.58m for 1:1 life size imaging.

Looks it's time to visit the store to get the M Adapter T.... 

 

 

And then do what I did, get an EOS (EF) to M adapter, from that famous auction site. Most lens mounts fit the EOS fitting, so I just use EOS to whatever camera I need, Fuji X, Leica T, Sony A, etc. My Nikkors for example fit the EOS mount via an F to EF adapter. My C/Y lenses (OK, I don't have any, but I do have the adapter) fit the same way, C/Y to EOS adapter.

Yep, fully manual, but yep, cheap and effective, as Dunk is showing.
