Q Super Macro: > 10X Magnification

I used the Q, Q to K Adapter, F 1.7X TC, 50mm extension tubes and the DFA 100 macro to produce this image. It is the lettering on the Bigma. According to measurements it is > 10X magnification.

I thought so to Jim. it is not a work of art but the Q allows possibilities. I am playing with this combo on the K30 and the F 1.7X TC allows AF using the Kenko AF extension tubes.

Gear aside, getting a sharp image with such a high degree of magnification is very tough. Well done!
