  • Macro Lens focusing distance Query

    I have just purchased (a week ago) a Panasonic G7 camera as I have had a G1 camera for a few years and have been very pleased with results from it. I also purchased a Panasonic/Leica 45mm 2,8 Macro lens with it as I want to do some real close up work. My query is:- *Where does one measure the closeest focusing distance from Subject to camera back OR Subject to centre of Lens ?
    The lens has printed on it as minimum focusing distance 0.15m.

    That minimum focussing distance of 150mm is from the sensor. Minimum working distance is from the front of the lens & can be quoted in specification lists.

      Many thanks Ross for that information. I have since found out that there is an icon like a plimsoll line on the top of the camera which indicates the position of the sensor.
