question

If i use this lens on a Nikon d800e body with the fovslxeosnik adapter will i be able to adjust the aperture?
Asked by: Francis K.
The FotodioX Vizelex Canon EOS Lens to Nikon Camera Adapter with Macro B&H # FOVSLXEOSNIK does not pass electronic signals so no aperture adjustment is possible.

question

Can I adapt this lens to a Nikon F mount with a converter like the Fotodiox mount adapter?
Asked by: Gene W.
The lens was designed to allow a Canon body to control the aperture electronically. To use the lens on any other body, you need a mount adapter with an integrated iris for manually controlling aperture.

can this lens fit to Sony NEXFS700R 4K Super 35mm Exmor CMOS ?
Asked by: ruixue
This is an EF Mount lens, while the FS700 has a Sony E-Mount. To use this lens with the FS700 you will need a Canon EF Lens to Sony E-Mount Adapter, such as B&H # MEMBEFEBT5 from Metabones. https://bhpho.to/2orhaY6

question

Is canon MP-E65mm USA works well in Indian climate also or there is any problem? please inform the right answer.
Asked by: Dr.Himangsu M.
The Canon MP-E 65mm f/2.8 1-5x Macro Photo Lens just as well as any lens in most climates, but it is not weather-sealed. If too much humidity or rain builds up outside the lens it could leak inside it and cause moisture problems that a weather-sealed lens may not encounter.

question

I want to take Dental photos as well as general macro photos with high magnification(eg- flowers,insects). Can I use this lens for both? By dental photography, I mean to take the picture of whole set of teeth, not individual tooth.Or which is the better lens satisfying both(macro and 3:1 or 5:1 magnification)I have both full frame(5DmarkII) and crop frame sensors(canon 300D)
Asked by: Anonymous
Great answers above. You'd also want to have that set of teeth removed from your victim's mouth... Even the slightest movement on their part will result in an out of focus shot. Maybe if they weren't breathing... ;-)

question

Whats the maximum focal lenght? I wonder if it can work for portraits as well as Macro photography!
Asked by: Anonymous
Yeah--you can't focus this lens. Or to clarify, the only way to focus this lens is to move toward or away from the subject. It is very much a specialty lens for macro photography, not portraits. You'd be sorely disappointed if you attempted to use this for that purpose.
