Re: DA*300 F4 as a backyard butterfly lens

Nice shots.

I am using it too for bigger butterflies and dragonflies. very good working distance

To get a little closer I add the Tokina 0,4 diopter achromat close up lens. Reduces the distance to about 0,8 meters, and gets scale up from 0,26 to 0,37 (0,36 to 0,52 when combined with a 1.4 TC).

Maximum working distance with de Close up lens is 2,5m.

Works great.

Best regards

Klaus
