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.
