So I am developing some 135 film and hoping to be able to digitize the negatives. I am looking into scanners, though I know many photographers digitize negatives by photographing them with a DSLR or other digital camera. I have a Lumix Micro Four Thirds camera. So far with my 25mm lens (50mm equivalent) I am not able to get close enough to the negative to fill out the (digital) frame with the photograph on the film.
So I am looking at macro lenses, in particular this one:
"Mitakon Zhongyi 20mm f/2 Super Macro"
B&H's product description says that
Minimum working distance (distance from front of lens to subject) is 0.8" It does not mention a maximum.
So my question is would this lens be suitable for photographing 35mm negatives? Is it too macro for the job? Or will it allow me to focus on and crop to the full frame of a 35mm slide.
