...answering Chris : MP = 60,5 — Pixel size = 6

The Hassel XCD 3,5/30mm seems very good in fact, but unfortunatly not my system and is way too expensive.

The Mamiya 50 could also be an option as it's a lot cheaper but isn't really a wide angle https://www.keh.com/shop/mamiya-50mm-f-4-shift-lens-for-mamiya-645-manual-focus-77.html Minimum Focusing Distance 45cm.

This MAMIYA 24MM F/4 FISHEYE https://www.keh.com/shop/mamiya-24mm-f-4-fisheye-uld-lens-for-mamiya-645-manual-focus-built-in.html Minimum Focusing Distance 30cm could be the one. Maybe one has to use it with an extension. It's known to be sharp but I have no ideas how it could react for the specific close up - macro purposes.

There is also the Opteka 15mm f/4 Wide angle macro: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B071JPFXBR/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o03_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 It is a definite clone of the Venus wide angle macro, with the same glass, apparently. Also a lot less expensive.

There is a discussion thread about this here: https://www.photomacrography.net/forum/viewtopic.php?t=40966.

So I bought a copy, and it seems quite good but I haven't time to really test it out. I hope to post a review here at some time.
