XF1.4X TC WR/XF60mm macro

Recommended Posts

The TC design has an element that is considerably proud of the mount about 1.5cm. You physically cannot mount it to any other lens than the 50-140mm and 100-400mm currently. In the case of your 60mm if you tried to mount it it would scratch the rear element of the 60mm lens and still not fit.

Ok, I understand the problem. If I put an MCEX-16 in between as somebody did with the 90mm would that work?

I've been wondering as well. There's really only one way to find out. With out spending too much money you can rent what ever missing components you need.

 There is no option like that in this Neck of the woods!

Well this set-up works fine for me as I get a little better WD by a couple of centimeters. I use a small flash on either side of the lens about 30cm apart and the main light comes from the top of the tank. There is a focusing limit for taking head shots and is only fit for smaller children.

I am not sure that both the Raynox AND the tubes are needed to achieve this level magnification and that probably you could get a lot closer than this but I guess that you can make things as complex as you wish.

Yes you are right milandro! This is the magnification I like for the shrimps as they all are about an inch long or a little less. Sure I can get closer with different set-up´s but this works for me! The 11mm tube is only there for the EC-1,4 otherwise this would not fit.Now I got my 84mm macro and I am happy with it!

Interesting idea stacking the lens adaptors, I tried it with my Sigma 50 Art with a 13mm tube on it, on my X-T1, didn't work out well. However putting my old Zeiss 2.4/35 directly adapted on the X-T1 worked out really good as it focuses so close anyway.

My XT 2 with MCEX-16 & 60mm lens will not fire. It appears to be fitted properly - I can focus the lens - and I have a fully charged battery installed. Anyone else have this issue? Anyone have any idea why I am fumbling with this?

 

Thanks in advance.

Hi Drake, this combination is fine on my X-T2. It sounds like a problem of communication between lens/MCEX-16 and camera. Maybe a bit of dust on one of the contacts?
