At times I ask questions hoping to glean from others experience via experimenting. I was concerned to appear lazy and so thought to figure out how I could use this little Leica Elpro VIb on my camera. My first thought was whether it would fit the Raynox adapter threads. It is very close but yet there is a bit of a lip on the lens before the threads that don't allow it to set down in the Raynox threads. I had a old junk filter (though it is 48mm and the Raynox adapter thread is 49mm), I shattered the glass and taped the ring and the lens together and managed to make it work but perhaps at the risk of ruining the Raynox threads. lol. I gently thread it though sufficiently to hold this little Leica lens and it still works with the Raynox 150 lens threads when I take it out but I have two adapters anyways. Ok, I am proud of myself for doing this so don't yawn your way through this information. :blah:

Here it is...

and then perhaps stack them... ?





A bang up job but hey...it works for me ) I will try to get some results someday.

Yeah right Jim!

Well, Ok, I went out and just grabbed a few things on the Elpro lens...I am sure they will knock your shoes off. I just threw it in A priority... with more work/experience...I think it is a nice little lens.

Thanks! ) I should note that the photos are just the Elpro and not stacked with the Raynox. I think I recall the lens being a bit over 4+. I will have to check my link. If stacked one would be likely getting a bit over 8+.

To me that's part of the joy of a hobby, improvising and seeing what you can do. Good for you.
Replied before I saw your results, worked very well. I really like the color lines and texture of #1.
