Closest focus  is 1m (!) from outermost edge of the lens, F 8. Focus on the program wheel of the camera.

Already wide open picture quality is o.k. Stopped down it's astonishing for such  simple lens design. Have a look at the full resolution image at F 16 and you know what I mean. The lens has no close focussing capablities. It is very small, lightweight and cheap. A very nice legacy lens to start with.

This lens is collapsible. There is enough room iside the A7 to collapse it, at least with my version, but you have to try at your own risk. Please proceed slowly, you don't want to aspire dust into the camera. It's an extremely small and lightweight lens. Depending on your adapter, you might have to cut out a little "groove" for the base of the tiny knob, that has to be pushed in  to set the lens to infinity and lock it there. My adapter has a slightly protruding ring, so I had just to file off a weeny bit of the base of the knob.

The lens can not be fully collapsed into the A6000. It touches the plastic around the opening for the sensor. If you push cautiously, it collapses quite a bit, but again it's at your risk.
