Macro Lens for RX10M4?

Macro Lens for RX10M4?

At that place is some word on this forum of the Polaroid D250 achromatic front lens to for macro use upwardly to 600mm.

A little more searching shows  that Canon and Raynox also make a “D250”.

And, so there is also a “D500”.

1)  Is there any difference in image quality between the Polaroid, Catechism, and Raynox versions of this lens?

ii) Does the D500 too work on the RX10m4?

Cheers,

Hello Phil,

I accept the raynox and the polaroid. The raynox doesn’t work very well on the M4. It needs step down rings to fit on the front end of the camera. It works brilliantly on my Rx100V, simply I was extremely disappointed with the range and focusing power on the M4.

The polaroid on the other hand is a perfect fit on the M4. Its a big chunk of glass compared to the raynox, but the results are, in my eyes, excellent. You tin use information technology the full length of the M4 zoom range, with the DoF getting more than narrow the closer y’all get to 600mm.

Hope this helps a little.

Kickoff of all you need to understand what the numbers ordinarily mean. For everyone but Raynox D250 means the focal length of the lens is 250mm and D500 means it’southward 500mm. Hoya and another manufacturers use the culling measurement which is dioptres so you’ll 1 dioptre up to 5 dioptre lenses available. The important thing to know is that focal length times dioptre = 1000 and so it’due south piece of cake to convert between the ii.

Raynox’due south DCR-250 is but a designation and it’due south actually an 8 dioptre lens. I’ll leave working out its focal length equally an exercise for the student.

Next, magnification. Close-upwardly magnification is calculated as focal length of camera lens divided by focal length of accompaniment lens so you tin can come across that a D500 gives one-half the magnification of a D250.

Finally, most accessory lenses are available in a range of sizes to suit the filter threads of the lens. Raynox is the exception as it but offers a sprung, prune-on adapter, suitable for lenses up to 62mm. It will vignette
severely
on an RX10 III or 4 if fastened using a step-down band.

I would wait the Canon D250 to be better quality than the Polaroid equivalent – information technology has to be to justify the much greater cost. The other alternatives are the Marumi Achromats which come in 330 and 200 forms and in a huge range of filter sizes.

Thanks for your helpful replies, guys!

Looks like it will be the Polaroid 250D

The step downwardly rings for Raynox iis a deal killer for me and the Catechism simply seems to be available in 52mm and 58mm sizes, while the Polaroid is available in 72mm.

I got some step down rings equally I had the Raynox, but information technology wasn’t skillful on RX10.

I find the Polaroid 250d really proficient, but its heavy. You lot wouldn’t want to leave it on your photographic camera and walk around all twenty-four hours. I think It would ruin the camera lens drive… 😮

I got some step down rings as I had the Raynox, merely it wasn’t good on RX10.

I detect the Polaroid 250d really practiced, but its heavy. Y’all wouldn’t desire to leave it on your camera and walk around all 24-hour interval. I think It would ruin the camera lens drive… 😮

I had read that the Polaroid is heavy – I guess I’ll put it on and off before each session.  Hope it doesn’t strain the zoom motors!
