I just bought some tubes..It comes with the body coupling, 3 extender and a len coupling... I tried with a 50mm 1.7 but the dof is so narrow it was almost impossible.. next i tried with my 28-200mm tamron and suprisingly the picture are decent.. it's all around 100-135mm with about 1 inch extension

Looks like a nice combination - no trouble with your focus. The 50mm lens is super sharp and if you use a small aperture, you can get a useful DOF for macros. You are right about a razor thin DOF when using 1.4 to 2.0

john,
this has been talked to death. first try a blower. up until a couple of weeks ago i used a turkey baster. do not touch anything in the camera with it. what graphics program do you use??

to ck it, set the lens to f16-higher and shoot the blue sky. d/l the image and open it. do an ''auto levels'' on it and you'll definately see the dust.

I really like the bee, but there is a lot of wasted space to his left. Perhaps cropping would give that little extra touch! Still a great capture!

Welcome to the world of macro photography, it remains my favorite subtype of photography. Those are all good first shots and the clover is, in my opinion, extremely nice.

You should definetely follow Roy's advice to try the blower first. Thus far, I have not had to use the PecPads I bought. I may not be as concerned about a little dust as some but the dust does seem to show up in macro shots more than others.
