Just rained so I decided to go out at 9pm and test some gear i was thinking about. All the images are 17mm across in real life, which gives them a magnification ratio of 1.4:1

The aperture on the 50mm was set at 2, and 5.6 on the 100mm.
Here's my ... "new" rig

Also, would it be worth PP'ing the ring light's reflection out on the pink image? I think if I do it'd be something i could hang on a wall.

I almost feel sorry for the lens- but apart from slight softness, I'd say the magnification here is quite good!
