FA 50/1.4 stacked on the Kit lens

Hello,

I stacked the FA 50/1.4 on the kit lens to obtain Life size magnification..

Kept the FA 50/1.4 at minimum focus and held it reversed on the Kitlens at 55mm at minimum focus..

kept both lenses wide open..

Now, FA being 49mm fitted exactly into the kitlens (52mm) so no need of a reversal ring..

In manual mode..Built-in pop up flash worked..adjusted the shutterspeed to 1/180 n fired..

May IQ would have been better if I had removed the UV filters on both lenses..

None the less a good macro ( 55mm/50mm = 82.5mm/75mm =1.1X magnification!)

Life size magnification achieved..but the working distance is very less- front element almost touching the subject and thereby obstructing the flash to light it..So tilted the setup a little bit so that flash light could fall on the subject..but as a result, the lens wasnt parallel to the subject and got less DOF..


This jepg is straight from the camera, no editing save cropping (vignetting)..Overall a decent photo..

Here's another..

A week old Golden Gourami baby on Flickr - Photo Sharing!

remember, the builtin flash doesnt reach the subject, but its bounce does..therefore if anyone wants to carry out this experiment, shoot vertically down, against the wall...
