DOF - Dedicated macro vs tubes etc.
Aug 26, 2012

Does a dedicated macro lens give more DOF than 'alternative 1:1 methods'? I have been tinkering with macro on and off for a little while now, but don't own a dedicated macro lens. I have been using 28/50mm primes both on tubes and reversed. However, the battle with DOF is a tough one, which I often feel I am losing.

Regards

Ken
