Digital Photography Reviews of The Best Sony Macro Photography Lenses

The Best Sony Macro Photography Lenses

Macro Photography and Close-Up Photography requires Special Sony Macro Photography Lenses. For the Sony a77 II Camera, there are two Sony Macro Lenses that Meta uses – The Sony 50mm f/2.8 Macro Lens and the Sony 100mm f/2.8 Macro Lens. Both of these Special Sony Macro Lenses can also function as Sharp f/2.8 Prime Lenses. They have very similar features, including an Auto Focus Lock Button. The Sony 50mm f/2.8 Macro Lens can shoot the Bee, but the Sony 100mm f/2.8 Macro Lens can shoot the Bee’s Face!

Digital Photography Reviews of The Best Sony Telephoto Lenses

Sony 70–200 f/2.8 White Telephoto Lens

The Sony 70–200mm f/2.8 “White” Telephoto Zoom Lens can be easily converted into a Macro Lens by adding Kenko Extension Tubes. The minimum focus point will go from about 1 Meter to about 10 cm, but you’ll loose your infinity setting. This is a great lens for shooting Hummingbirds and Wildlife Photography. APS-C Crop Factor: 70–200mm x 1.5 = 105–300mm. 77mm Filters.
Fits in Lowpro 11 x 26cm Lens Case.

Digital Photography Reviews of The Best Sony Extension Tubes

Kenko Extension Tubes for Macro Photography and Close-Up Photography

Kenko Extension Tubes (Sold as a Set of 3 Tubes) are designed to enable any Standard Lens to focus closer than its normal set minimum focusing distance, thus producing much closer images. These are hollow tubes, no glass, that mount between the camera and the lens. They are recommended for shooting Extreme Macro Photography or to convert any Standard Lens into Macro Lenses.
All 3 Rings Fits in Lowpro 9 x 9cm Lens Case.

The 12mm Kenko Extension Tube works best with the Sony 100mm f/2.8 Macro Lens.
