Macro Variations


    These are photos of a centimeter ruler with the Canon 100mm f/2.8 macro lens set at 1:1 on a Full Frame 35mm DSLR (Canon 5D), with Kenko extension tubes, Canon 2x Teleconverter, reversed 50mm f/1.4 lens and a Canon MP-E 65mm f/2.8 1-5x lens. Also included one with my old 10D (an aps-c sensor [1.6] DSLR) and a bellows with 50mm lens. Update: I just recently added a Kenko 1.4x Teleconverter with the 100mm f/2.8 lens.

Photos were resized to fit on screen (no cropping was done).
