Free E-book on Close-up and Macro Lenses
« on: November 15, 2017, 03:58:32 pm »

I have updated my 2014 e-book on lenses titled “Lenses for Close-Up and Macro Photography” for those interested. Included are essays and lenses for what are called the “Exotic Industrials.”

This is a free e-book. Made it myself and it is available and can be shared provided no fee is charged. This update is 239 pages and includes 64 more pages than the original publication.

Thank You for Your review to not most usual but maybe to most usable macro lenses.
Unfortunately I found mistake in the first page I read. I was curious about Your opinion of a lens I own, SK Apo-digitar-m 120mm. I looked into page 183. There was no opinion but wrong data, from AM-Nikkor 210mm, I wonder. Same wrong data in page 186 according to Componon-S 80mm. You have still a little editional work left.
I have not yet read the whole book but I'm going to do.

Thanks for the notes. Some of the data got with the wrong lens. I have and will post another version as soon as I am able.
