I bought a Canon AF-T2 adapter from Jessops. I bought it so I could modify it to fit my 20D on my microscope.

I had an old T2 mount Carl Zeiss 50mm prime lens that had been lying about for years and years. Just our of interest I fitted it to the 20D.

It won't focus any further than about 6 feet away. Is that because it's being held too far from the camera with the adapter?

How could I make it fit so that it will focus in it's normal range?

I have tried some close up photographs with it and I cannot believe how sharp they are. I've never had images as sharp with my Canon lenses (18-55mm EF-S & 28-135mm IS).

Why does this lens look so good? Would a Canon prime be as good? Are Canon L glass lenses like this? (Is that why people rave about them?)
