oooop's Tony,

You need lots of flowers to compensate for big boys toys!

I've not gone too mad yet, plus I just bought her a nice new camera

so I've spent less on myself!!!!

I think that needs correcting:-)

Ok daft question time,

What exactly is the camera doing when you select macro mode?

This is with the +4 filter on full zoomjust aperture priority both set at F6.3. About 1ft away

It is probably shifting the distances between groups of lens elements to allow it to focus over a different range of distances! You have now exhausted my limited knowledge of the internals of these lenses! :-)

Cheers,

Just being the engineer, it's not enough to know that it works I need to know how and why :!:

I've been "at it" again ....... grabbed a 50mm f2 Yashica lens some sticky tape and my well used steel rule.

You saw it here first ......... the 1mm full frame shot from the M410R!

Depth of field was not very usable unless youhave something with better fine control than a mini tripod, but the working distance was a useful 50mm.

Cheers, KK.

How close can you go!!

Would it be practical to use in a "real shot" or only for demo's?

I think I've reached a practical "table top" limit with the 50mm lens!

I could just use it in the field without the digizoom .....a little hit and miss but "doable". The 135mm front elements seem to be similar to your +6 combo ..... more practical for field shots.

With some sort of macro stand, withfine control,for scientific studythe 50mm would be quite good.

Cheers, KK.
