yes, i like the sharpness, just look that crop of the wasp

one thing with this lens , it's m42 mount but only automatic, so unless you have an adapter that can press the pin on the mount you can use it only wide open...i had this lens for a while, but just recently dad of my ex-girlfriend made me a metal ring that i could fit into my m42>4/3 adapter, so now i was finally able to test this lens , along some others that were also only automatic

Wonderful shots! Which camera did you use to take these pictures?
I'm very much disappointed with the Canon EOS crop cameras,
as their focussing mechanism (focussing screen and AF confirmation)
are awful, worse than the most primitive film SLR.
Unless you focus through LiveView, you will miss the point in macro work.
My idea is that the Pentax DSLRs are perhaps best or what is your experience
in macro work?

This is very easily solved with a piece of rubber that you fit inside regular m42 to jam the pin.

Nice shots, by the way!

those shots were made with Olympus E-M5. with it's magnify option you can fine tune the focus while viewing through EVF.

i solved that by adapting one of my m42 to 4/3 adapters, adding a black metal ring into it. but, as i now use m4/3 cam , when i bought the adapter from ebay, i made sure that it already has a flange to press the aperture pin

The Olympus E-M5 seems to have some nice features ideally suited for macro work and your pictures prove that its focussing array is precise.

I just bought this EBC X Fujinon Macro 55mm 3,5 DM (with X bajonett) for 30 for my Nex without knowing how good this lens performs. After seeing these shots, I can hardly wait the arrival of the fj-nex adapter!
Cool
