The Venus Optics Laowa 15mm f/4 Macro (about $479) is a DSLR design installed in a Sony E-mount mirrorless mount (also available for DSLRs). The lens is completely manual and communicates no EXIF info or aperture to the camera: manual unclicked aperture, manual focus, no EXIF info communicated to camera.
I had some fun shooting close range images with the Venus Optics Laowa 15mm f/4 Macro down to about 1:4. The Laowa 15/4 focuses as close as 1:1, but at that range there is only ~5mm of clearance to the front element and the lens shades the subject, so I found 1:4 about the practical limit without special lighting aids.
