Beautiful! Amazingly sharp and detailed, great depth of field...
Which leads me to the question about the EXIF in your images. It claims the aperture was set at F/1.0... That can't be right!!! at that magnification and focal length your DOF would be razor thin, not to mention the fact that you stated that your lens is f/4 (I doubt there are any f/1.0 100mm macro lenses out in the market). So what was the actual aperture used? How come the EXIF seems to be intact for all other data but the aperture is indicating a false value?

Thanks all. Jase, with a manual lens the EXIF will not show the aperture. I was shooting in manual mode and the camera only shows F---- as the aperture. I had the lens set at F11.
