Look at that bokeh

That was with a YI 42.5mm in macro mode. Almost 10” is to far away, I want to touch whatever I’m taking a picture of. So 0” would do the trick.

I might of bought automatic extension tubes. That’ll let me use any lens as a macro lens.

If you want bokeh, use a macro lens, or extension tubes.

Was the YI always slow at focusing? Or just in macro mode?

Olympus’s site had a refurbished 45mm for under $200, was sold out, and now it’s not listed. Probably sharper then the YI, and costs less then a new YI. But is the bokeh like the above?

No flash ring was used, just a Magsphere and the flash pointed up. It kills the picture if you don’t point the flash up, even with the lowest power on the flash.

The Sigma 60mm can be a macro lens, with extension tubes. It costs $240 new, the Olympus 60mm macro is $400 or a little more new.

Think that was taken at f3.5 or whatever the lowest is in macro mode.

My eyes can’t seem to focus if I put my thumb right in front of it.

I don’t really need the Sigma 60mm, I have a Olympus 40-150mm lens, that’ll do 60mm. Use 150mm, and see what happens. The Olympus is probably slower, but it only cost $100 when I bought it.

I should not pay Ultra Mobile next month, upgrade my hosting instead. You have to call to get the account number, so you can port it. Not sure the number is worth doing that.
