I'm looking for a cheap but good quality 50mm K mount lens large aperture preferably to use for high magnification macro shots on my bellows unit. Anything upto around 50 would be good. Cheers, Andy

Sorry to intrude on a Classified Ad, but a wide aperture 50mm is not ideal for bellows use. The field is not flat enough and performance will be poor.

A manual focus 50mm f/4 macro lens would be best, but failing that a 50mm f/1.7 should be within budget. The M series could be the way to go.
Best regards, John

No need to apologise, thanks for the advice, I was wondering what would be the most suitable. If anyone has either of these then I would definitely be interested.

Regards,

Andy
