Hi Mani

I made a 55mm one out of 6061(not positive-could be 7000 series)aluminium,but i think you could get away with using the proper tubing(drawn - not seam welded).Depends on what size you are after.

Lensmate make good quality 52mm & 58mm.

Do you have access to a machining center or milling machine/rotary table and lathe - if not then you may be hard pressed to make your own.If you do have access i can send you a sketch with sizes for the bayonet - length may vary depending what you are going to mount on the end.

Cheers Dom

Thanx Roxydog for that sketch, its realy useful. I m sure I vl B able to make one with this.

Have U used supermacro mode with teleconverter on?

thanx again

I only have the teleconvertor (for extra zoom) not the macro convertor - but have seen some great shots with it.

ijust purchased as2, but have a A80 that I bought an add on adapter and wide angle + telephoto lenses for , which are all 52mm. Will these A80 lenses work with the s2 if I buy the s2 52 mm adapter? thanks in advance for any info!

mani Feb 19, 2006 12:15 PM

NO ! NO! I M asking about Super macro mode of s2 not any macro convertor. I repeat my query--> If teleconvertor is attached to S2, can V take photo - setting supermacro mode of camera (0-10 cm distance)?

Yogio U didnt mentioned what make & model of adaptor & convertor U have.

Mani - When using super macro with convertor it locks in full wide and you get a big vignetting ringand subject is smaller- no good.
