Nice shot! You sure that's not microscope and not macro? :wink-6:
Macro has been defined as 1:1, with relative certainty (there should always be room for doubt and argument) . Anything less than that is considered to be 'closeup' by the vast majority of macro photographers I happen to meet. Where macro becomes micrography is less certain, but I've come across statements that the threshold is at 10:1. Unlike the 1:1 definition (lifesize), the 10:1 definition is more arbitrary. So I guess some people would see it this pic as micrography, and others not. TBH I think everything 1:1 and larger is micro or macro. The terms should be interchangeable. As I have it, Nikon refer to their lenses that are capable of 1:1 as 'micro' lenses.

I know it's hard to read people on the net. I was just marveling at how close up you can get with that lens, not that it's really a microscope. It's very impressive and thanks for the info anyway, I didn't know that stuff before.
