A Dime a Dozen (or: "My Life Savings")

I'll admit, I've gone a bit shack-wacky from all the rain we've been having...

300mm 5.6 @F11 (or maybe F8) w/ AF540 off ceiling with catchlight. Mag is 1:3.3

With 2x Flat Field Converter; somewhere between F16 and F22. Mag is 1:1.85

For comparison, this is with my old "macro" setup - Pentax-A 28-80mm @F8 and a moderate crop. Mag was about 1:5

If you're observant, you'll note that the dime in front is marked 2010. It is October. I'll be repeating this (hopefully with better results) on the 10th. Maybe at 10am. If I'm awake.

Very sharp results here.
All of them are quite impressive macros.
Well done.
