Nikon Plan 10X (inf) and Raynox M-150

Post by RLSprouse »

I understand the Raynox M-150 can be used as a tube lens with the Nikon 10X inf. objective. I intend to use this with my Nikon D850. Any advice on ways to mate these up? TIA

Welcome aboard!

The web tells me that Raynox M-150 is a synonym for Raynox DCR-150, which is what it's usually called in this forum.

The simplest method is to buy a tube-and-rail set from either WeMacro (https://www.wemacro.com/?product=raynox ... e-lens-pro) or mjkzz (https://www.mjkzz.com/product-page/vari ... ith-clamps or https://www.mjkzz.de/collections/bundle ... ox-dcr-150).

Alternatively you can assemble a string of extension tubes and ring adapters. See for example the long thread that starts at viewtopic.php?t=35350 .

Or if you already have a bellows, then fitting adapters to the front of that may be attractive.

Does the Nikon plan 10x have coverage for full frame? Usually I think they're rated for 25mm at most, and even that isn't edge-to-edge amazing, but maybe that's only higher mag ones?

The Nikon MRL00102 (gold barrel, CFI-60 series, like at viewtopic.php?p=265587#p265587) covers about 5 mm diameter on subject, so about 50mm diagonal on sensor at 10X.

It works great on APS-C at 5X, on 100 mm tube lens, which is 5.6 mm diameter on subject.

The MRN70100 (CFI BE 10X NA 0.25 WD 6.7, like at http://www.photomacrography.net/forum/v ... hp?t=16348) also covers APS-C at 5X.

The MRP70100 is not so good. See my comments at http://www.photomacrography.net/forum/v ... 206#181206 .

May I draw some attention to the query from me (currently last post in the thread Rik linked above) of getting a special adapter from Raf which directly fits to the Raynox DCR-150 (M150) and to the Mitutoyo lenses on the other side. Is there any Interest?
