As it states this is a magnification lens not a macro,it does not replace a macro lens.auto focus and manual focus would not work when u mount this lens.to get a clear picture you have to change the object distance from the lens and maintain a fixed focus on camera. so literally you are disabling the all technologies in your camera and replacing it with moving the object distance from the lens,macro does not work this way. it changes distance between the lens and the sensor.macro at the max is 1 to 1 ratio,magnification is minimum 1to1.
not great to shoot jewelry (usually macro lens 100 mm f2.8 with florescent filter will get you superior results)since focus distance is 1/2-4 inches ,not that particle, and the camera will be in the way .the camera will go out of focus easily if the object moves,recommended use on a mount the object is between the camera and light.It will be rare to use them.
