Easy High-Magnification Photography

James K. Beard "jim_beard", Amazon
5 March 2015
  • Summary: Over the years, I've used reversed macro lenses with extension tubes and bellows a number of times. The first time I assembled this lens, its dedicated lens hood, and the Canon macro twin-lite, I got more and better results around the house than in all the previous decades. It's not easy to use hand-held, and there are those who will tell you that it's best used with a sturdy tripod and a focusing mount, and they are right - but you can get powerful and amazing results...

Excellent Canon Lens

JohnH4260, Amazon
2 March 2015
  • Summary: This is an excellent Canon lens if you're interested in going beyond the standard 1X magnification of a normal Canon Macro lens. The lens does require a modification in technique as there is no manual or automatic focusing as found on most lenses. Instead you will need to move the entire camera/lens combination to get your subject in focus.

The best extreme macro...

Dana M., Amazon
26 January 2015
  • Summary: This is MANUAL only, forewarning, and you have to plan for lower light at full magnification...I use this for micro/macro photography of mineral crystals as small as 0.5-1mm...this is the ULTIMATE macro lens...heavy, uses an included CMount, needs a strong tripod, because of the weight, and to avoid shaking; (I also hold my breath when taking a shot at full/5X magnification to avoid shaking)...has a 58mm filter thread.
