    Mitakon Zhongyi 20mm f/2.0 reviews

    20mm f/2 4.5x Super Macro Lens for Micro Four Thirds is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great lens for serious macro work! This is a very specialized lens, specifically designed for extreme close up photography only. I knew this before buying it. At such a high magnification a tripod is essential. Also, a macrorail would be helpful (next on my list). Doing macro with this lens outdoors, you will need to be photographing stationary objects. Plants are difficult because the slightest breeze blurs everything. Likewise, most insects move about too quickly. Best to set up those types of subjects inside or wait for a very calm day. Having said that, this is a very high quality lens. Great value for the money.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome cheap extreme macro lens I am very impressed with the quality of this lens considering its low cost. However, I would only recommend this lens to an individual who is intending on using a macro focusing rail and focus stacking via software. The depth of field for this lens is absolutely miniscule. The photos I attached to my review are composites of dozens of individual photos. You aren't going to get shots with this much depth of field out of the box. The rail that I used for these photos was a Manfrotto 454. Additionally, I used a 16mm extension tube, but this lens still takes beautiful photos without any additional magnification.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Specialized lens and fun for the price Works much like others have said.� The focus depth is minuscule so you'll likely combine several photos even with something you find to be relatively flat.� You'll likely end up like I did, scavenging your house for interesting object to photograph at a microscopic level.� Not sure it is something I'll use a lot, but fun nonetheless.� I think you could get away without using a macrorail, but a tripod is a must and likely will want to set up a sturdy table that you can set things in front of the lens as opposed to moving the camera around to various objects if able to do so.� I wouldn't say it produces the sharpest photos in the world but can't complain for the price.� I attached a couple of my shots so you get an idea of the scale of objects we are talking about.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Legit Lens for Macro Photography I just got this for my GH5 and love it. I have always liked macro photography and macro film and want to attempt it properly. You will need a tripod, possibly some lighting, and a lot of small detailed objects to photograph!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Really, really, really small DOF! Needed a good focusing rail to use it properly, but, what pictures!
