Re: Macro Monsters.

I'm sorry Peter, I'm new to photography. What are extension tubes?

Hi, thanks.

You might try extension tubes which should work with that lens. I've also tried bellows which give a bit more flexibility. The ones I've tried have been the maunual type so you will lose all automatic functions. Also metering will be through the lens stopped down to the appropriate F number so the image will appear darker. Focus is also manual but this is best for macro work anyway. Gautam's tip below regarding reversing rings also makes sense. I've tried them all but at the end of the day nothing beats the MP-E.
cheers,
peter
