lens options for macro-ish stuff
particularly interested in opinions on the fuji 60mm f2.4 lens. while not a 1:1 macro, i think it might do well enough for some stuff i want to photograph.
minimum focus distance on regular lenses means too much cropping for a good ring shot, so i obviously need something more macro-ish. as much as i would love the new Fuji 80mm 1:1 macro, i just cant justify the cost. if anyone that owns the 60mm f2.4 lens could chime in and let me know how its macro capabilities are, that would be great. also, how is the AF on that lens for shooting macro? or do you just switch to MF?
this was an attempt at a ring shot using my 16" lightbox. I like the way the image itself turned out, but the ton of cropping needed to make it large enough in the frame just distorts the image too much.
