Need help selecting macro lens... Canon 50mm vs 100mm
 
Hello everyone I really hope someone can help me.

How small an object can you fill a frame with using the Canon 100mm at 1 foot away (min focusing distance)? I was told you could fill the whole frame with a dime, is that true?

How small of an object can u fill the fram with the Canon 50mm macro at 0.8 feet??? Is it double the size? (4 dimes in a square)??

Also, optically speaking, will the 50mm with a 1:1 full size converter have the same optical properties and clarity as the 100mm macro since it has extra glass?

Thanks for your expertise :)
