Amazing lens for the price. Opens yet another dimension of photography

Not particularly great use

The magnification ring is too loose compared to many other lenses. I was hoping that it might be able to turn with more resistance. A constant magnification without the zoom ring may be better, particularly when shooting down from vertical, as there is a chance of bumping it. From what I've found, the lens is sharp at F/5.6 but not so much at F/8 and towards F/2. The F/2 aperture is much for this type of lens also because of the extremely shallow depth of field. The engineering of the lens could've been thought out more. Three to four stars.

Interesting lens for macro photography of flowers. It took a bit to get used to it but it stirred my creative juices.

Excellent for extremely detailed botanical photography

I use this lens for for images of plant parts 5mm in size, such as small flowers, grass/sedge scales, and tree buds. I do all photography handheld and am unsure why some online reviews of this lens indicate that handheld use isn't possible. I use generally f/8-f/16 apertures, fast shutter speed (1/160-1/200), and extremely high ISO (up to 6400 in dark situations, significantly less in full sun), and the camera's native flash and get images that, while not always exceptionally beautiful, contain useful details that are difficult to capture with other lenses. Botanical photography benefits from the extremely close focal distance of this lens - in all of these photos my hand is resting on the lens while holding the subject out of frame, so I'm generally able to get very stable shots that may be impossible with longer focus distances. Photography of mobile subjects is basically impossible, although I've got lucky a few times with slow-moving fellows.

A Very Challenging Lens

By Alan

This super macro lens is the most challenging I've ever come across. It does one thing and one thing only: it makes 4x or 4.5x macro images. The depth of field is paper thin even at smaller apertures and really requires some knowledge of focus stack and a focus stacking rail to produce decent photos. The uploaded images show the potential and the limits of the DOF issue. This lens is not for everyone, but if one is up for a challenge with some time to work with this lens, I would recommend it.

Good choice

question

how do I get the lens cap off ?
Asked by: Ruth
The front lens cap is a push-on type cap that you can pull with your fingers. The rear lens cap is a bayonet-type cap that will twist off in one direction and twist back on in the other.

does it works on A6000 crop sensor camera?
Asked by: Zanio
Yes, the Mitakon Zhongyi 20mm f/2 4.5x Super Macro Lens for Sony E, B&H # MIK20MF2SE, would be compatible for use on the Sony Alpha a6000 Mirrorless Digital Camera, which uses the Sony E-mount lens mount. As with all lenses used on the Sony a6000 Mirrorless Digital Camera, if you are comparing the angle of view of the lens to the same lens used on a full-frame camera, you would have to multiply the focal length by 1.5x to find the full-frame equivalent. As such, the Mitakon Zhongyi 20mm f/2 4.5x Super Macro Lens for Sony E used on the Sony a6000 would be the equivalent of a 30mm lens used on a full-frame camera.

question

is there any way to attach a ring light to this lens?
Asked by: Grant
The lens doesnt have a front filter thread, so there would be no way to attach a ring light to the lens. Though, with a minimum focus distance of .79 (20 mm), you would likely be looking to find some lighting coming from the side. Or, if the item being photographed is relatively translucent, you might also consider lighting it from the back.
