    Default Vitacon 28-80mm 3.5-5.6 Macro 1:5.3x

    Anybody ever used this lens?

    I found a Nikon F50 with this macro lens atrached, how to check macro lens?

    I want to used it with my D90 body.

    Thanks guys!

    1:5.3X doesn't sound like macro capability

    1:5.3 is way to low a magnification to be a macro lens. If the lens is still working fine, I don't see why you can't use it on your D90

    If you try to photograph something like a 10c coin, and you aren't able to get it in focus whilst occupying more than 2/3 of the image, I wouldn't consider that to be macro

    I have a 24mm sigma which claims to be macro with 1:4 and i thought that was bad.
