  5. Hi, dear friend. I own a Summicron 50 mm f/ 2 Dual Range, complete with goggles. Without goggles, the minum focus distance it's 1 metre.
    With goggles the focus distance range it's comprise from 88 to 48 cm. In the end of production, the minum focus distance was 51 cm (with goggles).

  6. Raymond,
    If you are really into the Macro end of the "Ms", why not look into the 90MM Macro Elmar?
