    I've been investing some time on past weekend, to try a setup for macro that could be used with the G1, and this is what I've gotten:

    A M42 bellows mounted on a M42-to-M4T adapter, and an Industar 50-2 lens on it:


    And this is a sample gotten with it:


    Used 1600 ISO because the low lighting conditions.
    First conclusion: mandatory to align properly the target and the lens, the DOF is very short...

    Thanks for your comments, colleagues.

    I bought it at a flea market here in Barcelona.
    A Zenith camera with the Industar and the bellows (in a different seller),
    all in all 45€...
