Canon FD 50mm f1.4 + Vivitar 2X Macro Focusing Teleconverter MC + XT 10

Recommended Posts

Like title sais, I went out to play with my newest toy, Vivitar 2x macro focusing tele converter. I got it for 20€and it is interesting little device. It can serve as regular tele converter but also as macro converter. It has build in focusing helicod and can turn your regular 50mm lens into 100mm macro 1:1 lens. I use it with Canon 50 1.4 so it converts it to 100 2.8 1:1 macro.  As regular converter  it is nothing special, but for macro I find it quite good, especially when considering price. It is sharp enough and is easy to use. For 1:1 magnification you need to focus lens to closest distance and then use focus on converter to get to max magnification.  It is also possible to use all steps in between. These samples are all handheld, aperture on lens was set to f8 and I used built in flash as I left my Yongnuo at home. It is hard to handheld at 1:1 as doff is really thin but with practice it should get easier.
