Getting Close
Posted By: JMS, 03-10-2008, 02:16 PM

I got a macro reversing-ring, and here are the results.

The arrangement used for this photo was an A-28mm f2.8 reverse-mounted on an A-50mm f1.7 on top of a Vivitar Macro-Focusing Teleconverter, with a K100D. Estimated 4:1 magnification. It's the face of a 25mm tall figurine my little brother uses for Dungeons and Dragons.

This one used the same equipment, except I switched out the 50mm for an M-135mm f3.5. This had a profound effect on magnification, boosting it to an estimated 11:1. This is the tip of a G2 ballpoint pen.
