Discovering new world...slowly
Unfortunatly i haven't have much time to practice but i've got some really really awsome photos that human eye doesn't see in everyday life. There really is another small world down there ;)
But it must be mentioned, the lens is really difficult to use as well - No image stabilizer, no autofocus. Yes you read right, no autofocus - YOU ARE THE FOCUSing motor while moving yourself or the camera back-and-forward. Things get even more difficult when goning further from 1:1. If i remember correctly, then at 5:1 (yes, five times magnifications!!!) the DOF is only up to two millimeters at F16. So, any sharp image of moving object at low ISO without a flash seems like impossible..but haven't tried without a flash yet.
-- neither of the sample shots here are at 5x magnification. Memory is bad, but the fly is 1:1 and the another bug maximum 3:1 --
