The Tangerine Test

As I wrote recently, I've been given an old analogue Canon EOS Rebel SLR. It came with a cheap standard zoom lens, a 35-80mm.

I also told you that I have a new acquaintance, someone who fiddles with lenses. Handy little man.

He fixed my 50mm 1.8 Mk I lens, which I was very happy about. But he has more tricks up his sleeve. He converts cheap zoom lenses for macro use. And the 35-80mm happens to be his favourite. (By now you should be able to see where this is going...)

Yep, you guessed it. When I sent him the parcel with the 50mm lens, I included the 35-80mm and asked him to convert it for me. And for the more than reasonable sum of twenty euros, he did. (He fixed my 50mm for free, so I really can't complain about the cost.)

I did a quick test last night. Since I couldn't think of any other decent subjects to shoot, I decided to put the tangerine I had started eating on the table, under the light. And this is the result, my first macro test shot with the former zoom lens, now macro lens:
