The camera lens mount part is removable, therefore, for each camera type user needs to use a specific mount that comes with the lens. As a camera mount ring is used standard 58mm Macro Reverse Ring. Both ends of the lens has a 58mm x 0.75mm pitch Female thread, so the mount ring can be placed in any of the camera ends. For this listing there comes several mount rings for following cameras:
Canon EOS (EF / EF-S mount)
Four Thirds (Olympus DSLR, Panasonic)
Micro Four Thirds (Olympus PEN, Panasonic Lumix)
Each camera type has a specific focal flange distance, that is, the distance between sensor and rear lens element, in order to be able to focus infinity. So, this lens allow you to place rear lens element in distance you need. As lens elements for the Universal Lens are used a standard set of 52mm Close-up filters with magnification of +1, +2, +4 and +10. So you can buy Hoya or B+W if you need better quality.

For this Lens v1.1 aperture exchange is simplified. As aperture hole is simply used standard 25-52mm step-up ring that is attached inside the lens. You can attach various step-up rings with a different hole size to change the diaphragm size, or even make your own aperture ring. If the lens will be popular we will offer specifically designed aperture rings including various circle shape, square, rectangular, snowflake, etc. holes.
