    Hello All,

    I have a Rolleflex 6008 and would like to make some macro pictures. I have a LF lens -Schneider SA 90mm and a EL Apo-Rodagon 80mm . Could these lenses be used as a macrolens ?

    thanks

    The SA is a wide angle lens, probably not well-suited for work close up.

    The Apo Rodagon should do very well facing normally at magnifications from 1:8 to 1:1, reversed at magnifications > 1:1.
