Minolta AF Macro Zoom 3x-1x 1 macro lens overview: 1,7 (16) -2,8

This lens is very similar to a microscope, it has a special tripod on which it is mounted, the lens itself always looks down on the tripod. In theory, below the tripod you need to place what you need to remove or re-shoot. Minolta AF Macro Zoom 3x-1x cannot work like a regular lens, Minolta AF Macro Zoom 3x-1x always works only in macro mode and with it can't focus on infinity. In fact, Zoom 3x-1x is responsible for the magnification, from 1x to 3x. In 1x mode, macro is available with a 1: 1 magnification, and with 3x, 3: 1 macro is available, that is, super-macro. - yang(residential roofers)
