hello

i bought a canon a85 also and i want to take dental pictures...

so i have seen tha 37mm is better for not loosing flash.

is 37mm much worse than 52mm in quality?

i wanted to buy a close up macro lens and and a filter, but where do i get a 37 mm adapter to get the lens attatched to the body? help please

thanks

Scroll down to "Conversion Lens Adapter".

Closeup lenses -- I guess the price tag is to some lead. Pesonally I have a +10 Hoya which I'm satisfied with. Hoya is good qualityeven ifnot the best.

I actually just bought a set of wide and tele lenses,filters,and adapters,from that ebay seller named vcc113 for my Sony dsc-v1.So far I haven't had a problem with the lenses but finding the right adapter for my wide angle lens is turning into a nightmare

The adapter that came with the set did NOT work for my wide angle lens.For some reason it wasn't long enough and the original camera lens would hit the wide angle lens and not let my camera start-up....I told vcc113 and he credited my card for $10 with no questions asked(which means he's a fair seller)....

but then I bought an adapter set from another person on ebay and the threads are garbage...the tele adapter threads are cut to small and the adapter never tightens it just spins and spins

and the wide angle adapter barely tightens and for some reason all the pictures come out blurry(not sure if this may be a camera setting i actually have a post on this very subject)

so if I could do it over again I would buy genuine sony lenses and adapters....bottomline is you get what you pay for.....

hope this helps...
