    Mitakon Zhongyi 20mm f/2.0 reviews

    20mm f/2 4.5x Super Macro Lens for Nikon F is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 13.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great extreme macro lens Im very happy with this purchase especially at this low price point. Im not one to go cheap on lenses and was happily surprised by this one; it has a solid build and is very sharp. It feels like all metal construction and the rings for changing magnification 4-4.5 and aperture 2-16 run smooth and hold in place. It's basically a microscope objective mounted on a lens frame. Its all manual and shows up as a non-CPU lens on my Nikon D810 camera. Aperture is set manually on the lens rather than in camera. It has a very close working distance meaning you have to get very close to your subject. It works great in a controlled indoor setting but I think taking this outdoors would be more difficult. Example picture taken with this lens is a focus stack of 15 shots of a mounted fly, on a camera attached to a macro focusing rail.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great super-macro lens I'm very glad I got this lens, especially since the price was hard to beat during a pre-holiday sale. As others have said, this is a fixed-focus lens, so ideally the camera is on a focussing rail and your object is motionless. You also need to have a good lighting setup. When I received the lens, I did a quick test shoot with my camera on a "Velbon Super Mag Slider". As luck would have it, my kids just noticed a new stick insect hatching, so I used it as a test subject.� I had an external flash to one side of the insect, a reflector on the other. (Should have reversed the direction, but this was just a quick test.) I then manually advanced the focussing rail in about 30 steps to shoot a stack, which I combined into one image using the default settings on Helicon focus stacking software. Pretty happy with the results! So yes, this is a great lens for a studio setup. I can't imagine many instances where you wouldn't need focus stacking software to overcome the shallow DOF. �Not sure it would ever be of much use outside.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wonderful Super Macro Great for super-close up photography. Read the specifications: Maximum focal distance is 20mm. Very shallow depth of focus: this is fine if your camera is perpendicular to a flat object, else you will probably need focus stacking.
    Date published: 2017-06-21
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Special purpose economical fun lens Not necessarily the sharpest macro in the pack, but still, for $200 you can't go wrong. Effortless 4X magnification with easy to use aperture adjustment. It's definitely a special purpose lens, but fun to use, and faster than getting out the bellows and or reversing rings and couplers. It's 20mm focal length creates lighting limitations because of working distance, but I've had great results back-lighting foliage on a light table. It's for studio work. Trying to use it outside with existing light would be a fool's errand.
    Date published: 2018-06-30
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exciting and easy to use, but limited in range, as expected. The price was right and the lens performed as expected. (Arrived with some dirt on lens, however.) The DOF is narrow and the range of working subject distances is small, but that's the name of the game when it comes to super-macro. Be prepared to look at only very tiny details.
    Date published: 2017-06-21
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from great lens for advanced macro images this only has one focal plane, and that is 20mm in front of the lens. recommend using a focusing rail with the lens to make minute adjustments easier. makes crisp images when in focus with incredible magnification.
    Date published: 2017-08-06
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Nikon F mount macro lens period! I had searched for a way to use my Nikon D810 for super macro and was not happy with the options. Found this little gem of a lens. Here is a 14 image focus stack using this lens. Results don't lie!
    Date published: 2018-02-21
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Macro Just received it and tested it but I was surprised to see how "macro" it is... really? If you want to see all the microscopic details, this is the lense for it but you need a good lighting to get all the details.
