    Thanks.

    These were actually shot with a 70-200 (@200) with a 50 reversed onto the front of it.

    A macro coupler ($10, at most) will let you mount 2 lenses to each other, face to face. The 200 - 50 combination gives me 4:1. :)



    EDIT

    These are old pictures, but this will give you an idea of what I'm talking about:

    This is one of the pictures from that shoot:

    It's an RFID chip. The chip you see there is 1mm square.

    Wow, never heard of that! Thats really weird!
    And it's just like a macro lens, except those 400$ stay in the pocket?

    ...Well, I wouldn't exactly call it cheaper. Those two lenses together cost more than my 100mm macro lens. Just the 70-200 alone costs more than the macro lens, lol.

    It probably is one of the cheapest ways to go past 1:1 though.

    And heck - if you already have 2 or more lenses, why not? Ideally, you would want a long one and a short one. Long lens divided by short lens equals magnification. 200mm/50mm = 4:1
    You don't want to go too extreme though - 4:1 is hard enough! :lol:

    Working with this setup is pretty tricky...

    I still don't have any focusing rails, so I have to focus by moving the subject up and down. DOF at f/32 is probably about a half a millimeter or so. The total focusing range possible (by turning the focusing ring) covers like maybe 1 or 2 mm, so you have to position the subject pretty damn close to where it needs to be.

    I'd rather have the MP-E 65, lol! But, till then...
