    Mitakon Zhongyi 20mm f/2.0 reviews

    20mm f/2 4.5x Super Macro Lens for Sony A is rated 2.8 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great lens for the price The image quality of this lens is surprisingly high for the price tag. So if you've been stacking macro lenses with macro tubes or a teleconverter this is a nice option to get directly to 4:1 magnification or 4.5:1 magnification without all of the image quality lose associated with stacking tubes on the macro or teleconverters. Lighting is a hair difficult due to the short working distance but not impossible by any stretch.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Really Extreme Macro this lens is only for EXTREME macro photography, and can really only be used in the studio with absolutely stationary subjects. Focusing is very acute. Actually some of my out-of-focus pics had a rather abstract quality which was rather interesting. I didn't have any difficulty with lighting in ultra close situations. This lens is not for the person who just wants to get closer to the subject. But if you like a challenge and enjoy testing your photographic abilities, you will have fun at a low price.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not for me First things first. The available information on this lens does state it is for full frame cameras. I am not using a full frame camera. I am shooting a Sony a7ii which has a 1.5 crop factor. The furthest distance I could get this lens to focus was about 5/8" . The picture I have uploaded is of a penny from about 1/2" away. Note that I couldn't even get Lincoln's whole head in the frame and focus! If you know what to expect from a 20mm macro lens this review isn't for you, I had no idea. I didn't find any pictures to grasp the aspect ratio I would be looking at. This lens was incompatible with my a77ii so I had to enable the feature to release shutter without lens. I apologize for a review which does not actually critique the lens for it's merits, but I thought I would help another crop sensor photographer avoid the disappointment I had by uploading a picture and a warning. If you want VERY close up pictures this lens may just suit your needs.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Poor quality I know that the price is very cheap but the quality of the image is terrible, it is definitely not recommended
