Many thanks for the comments, I have not had the 6T for long and I tried to get a little closer to the subject and magnify to max, but that was about it, maybe I should set to EZ 5M settings?

Exif is:

F4.5
1/100 Sec
Exp +-0.0
@ 8MB
White Balance on Auto.

Would you say the Sigma was better than the 5T or about the same, is it cheaper? Will stacking the 6T with the Sigma give me better DOF?

Many thanks
The 5T and Sigma CU are similar, both are achromatic lens so no diff in perf I guess.
As a general rule, the higher the magnification, the LESSER the DOF. So stacking always reduces DOF.

For macros, try to use the smallest apeture. But that would lead to lost of light, hence the use of the ext flash compensates for that.

You can use the EZ5M, but it is effectively cropping the 8MP image, so not sure if more DOF is obtained. But do practice with the 6T, and you will get better.

tchuanye, All excellent as usual....TheFZ10 shots seem sharper to me than the A610, but maybe I'm just partial. #1 is my favorite.....Great job, again.

Thanks Hiroshi and bootneck2!

Hiroshi, for these shots, the Leica does produce sharper images. The canon can do that also I think, but perhaps, the subjects were not at the exact sweet spot.

Right I took your advice, also added a Hoya +4 CU lense to the 6T and had another go, I think its better, much closer, although DOF is pretty tight:

Exif:

F11
1/640 sec
WB Auto
ISO 80

I think its called a Tiger Spider (Jumper):
