Eurygaster sp.

For a certain time, when the MPE was constantly in use, i forgot my Schneider. !

This is the second stack with this "Splendid" lens.

It provides almost an equal quality as the MPE, with two big advantages:

- It does not swallow the amount of light as the MPE

- And it has a wonderful working distance - for this subject it was 15cm- as far as I can remember, maybe longer. It does not matter also, the main thing is that the lens is not kisses the insects like the MP-E 65.


Canon EOS 5D Mark II,

Novoflex BALPRO Bellows,

Schneider-Kreuznach Apo-Componon HM 90mm f4.5

33 Natural Light Images - 0,20mm - f/5.6, ISO 100-

Unfortunately, the stack was not motionless.
