    So I finally have some appropriate pictures to post!

    These two were taken with an old 50mm f/1.8 lens that came with a film camera for school.

    I used 48mm of extension tubes total to make it into a macro lens, and it worked exceptionally well. I'm really happy with the results. It has more magnification than my actual macro lens!

    These pictures are completely "Natural". No editing at all (Usually I would brighten them up a bit. . .)


    Sorry for the double post.

    Was it an old Nikon lens? I've got an oldy olympus 50mm I've been wanting to convert into a macro for myself, but I can't seem to find an adapter.

    Those pics look good, very good.

    Thanks.

    Yup, that's the regia. It looks huge in the pic but it's roughly two inches tall. :P

    I couldn't find the exact lens anywhere online, but I know it's old. Around 1980's.

    *edit*

    Here's one more taken today! This one has sharpening, a very small amount of cropping on the bottom, and some other adjustments.

    Send the Olympus lens to me!!!!! It's easy to find an adapter for my camera.
