Close-ups with wide angle lenses
#1
Since there has been some talk about this topic in the AF-S 40 thread, I think it's a good idea to start a new thread to collect some sample images of what close-ups with wide angles look like. I certainly enjoy this interesting mix of wide perspective and large magnification ... in fact I already did with the ZF 25, which technically was the weakest lens of the whole ZF line-up, but the one I had the most fun with in the field.



Anyway, a few samples from the Sigma EX 20/1.8, please feel free to add your's from similar lenses.



Taken the same day (and at the same location) as the images I posted in the "In the field"-thread today:

The small individual white flowers are about three mm in size.

Quite decent bokeh for such a wide lens, me thinks.



One more:

Next time I'll hopefully wear dark trousers instead ... and have a polarizer at hand.

Some with Sigma 24/1.8. Very fun to play with but not as sharp at normal distances as my other lenses. I replaced it with the Zeiss 24/2.0.

Minolta 35/2

It's one one the lenses that I use the most when I travel.

The first two are on sale at Getty image.

Canon 35mm f2 on APS-C... not wide angle on APS-C, but stitching more than 1 image together makes it wide angle again:

And in the spirit of the announced 40mm Nikon micro DX (35mm f2):

The non-stitched ones are shot with a tube, I assume?

All are, with 12mm. Also the stitched ones. Only exception is the mushroom at night image.

All these images of yours are appetizing... And that makes me feel free to ask for an advice for a WA lens. So except for the Sigmas I've already checked, lenses with the following features are suitable for this type of photography I guess:
  • FL between 24-50mm
  • higher magnification ratio
  • decent MTF even at wide apertures
  • decent background blur (with smooth transitions in colors)
I use F mount and FX sensor and have no problems with MF... Any suggestions?

well actually i'm out of here for a bit, but it's hard for me to resist a thread like this - so here are two old pics from the sony 16mm fisheye . . . and dare i say that mst takes the best people pics even without a polarizer . . .



anyhow, two more ordinary pictures from me -

One more, which you may have seen in the past already, but it fits the subject nicely so I post it here again. PC-E 24 on FX:
