Wow. The salt shaker especially catches me. I have one of these for sale, but am starting to re-think wanting to sell it.

Oh, you retained the zoom... F me. I still have the lenses that I broke out but the instructions on a previous page said to break out all of the 3 fronts... Oh well, watching the marketplace again.

Which elements would you remove to retain the zoom?

I cut out the front 3 elements and you can still zoom with it but all focusing is gone. To focus you have to change the distance to the subject.

Hmm... I was misunderstanding obviously. Its a static focus macro but the pictures people were getting were much wider. Its probably from a FF, not a crop. You can still move the barrel to zoom, it just does nothing.

Most photos in this thread are from crop cameras. The zoom still works. Turning the zoom ring does change your angle of view, and also the amount of magnification, without changing the camera to subject distance.

you can do something similar with the 18-55 kit lens, instead of puting it on the right way, hold it up to the camera backwards.... the front element closest to the sensor.

Just managed to find a link to this thread. I had one of these lenses that I bought for $15 before I knew it wasn't very good. Haven't used it in months and I just took the front element off and just wow. Definitely worth the money now.Time to go find stuff to photograph and annoy.

thanks to previous posts.

I managed pick one for $25, removed the front element, and that's all, works very well.

Its not all that sharp when modified except at 35 and at 80... This was at 68, so you can see softness.

The DOF is crazy thin. Haven't used it since I took the front element off over the summer. Here's what I got though:
