Re: Telephoto for macro

^^^Good stuff!!

So I was playing with the lens today. Without Ext tubes, the subjects are a bit small. I overestimated this len’s ability to do macro straight out of the box. I lost a great deal of focal length with the ext tubes though! Granted, this dragonfly was very small, maybe 2 inches, but I think it turned out good. These were simply a test shot in the back yard. Don’t judge the editing please, it was fast. XD The difference is subtle, but when I went to crop, I noticed a much bigger difference in how small the subject looked.

No ext tubes 200mm at f2.8

56mm ext tubes 200 at f2.8
