Hi, I'm Dan Reinecke with Unknown Media, and today I'm going to share with you how to mount a macro lens. Mounting a macro lens isn't any different than mounting any other lens. You just need to make sure that your lens'es mount matches that of your camera's mount. A PO mount won't match up with an EOS mount without an adapter. So you'll just need to make sure that you have the correct matching mounts. You are just going to want to make sure that your camera is in the off position. Remove the camera's mount cap exposing the camera's mount. Most lenses will have a dot that will align to a dot on the camera to show where the threading for the mounts begin. Align the two of these and then gently screw the lens to the camera until it locks. You shouldn't have to force it. If it feels like it won't go, don't force it. Just unscrew it, and try again until it goes in. I'm Dan Reinecke and that is how you mount a macro lens. Take your best shot.
