    so you think a 1:1 macro lens is really taking small things. well let's see what the MP-E65 5 macro lens can do!

    the crazy lens itself, it extends from a minimum of 11.5cm to a max of 24.5cm!








    and here I used it to shoot the number 8 on my Nokia 6300 phone, from 1 to 5 magnification. btw Benny, all shots done with handheld







    and here you can see the DOF at /2.8, /8 and /16 (all at 5)

    Holy smokes, Choy. Congrats on the new lens. That's some steady hand you have there!

    I'll have some extreme macro madness of my own soon, hopefully.

    so you want to see extreme macro?

    how about a single leaf of a sundew at 5× magnification? this is a single 20D frame slightly cropped and reduced:



    and this is the same image cropped but unresized:

    believe me, it cannot be seen with the eyes! the big black one is actually a dried up plant part. and could not do area cleaning because scared damaging the "dew" drops.

    Cheers,
    yep yep! Shooting something that is alive and moving going to be a pain in a *** with this lens. But it is the only consumer lens that provides 5X macro!
