Makes my total macro kit consists of:
- 2x teleconverter
- 100mm "macro" lens (1:2 magnification), f/3.5 to f/22
- "matched" diopter for 1:1 magnification
- Cheap ebay +10 diopter
- Ring flash
The image in the viewfinder is extremely dim and very unsharp due to the cheap diopter and teleconverter. However, by stopping all the way down to f/22 (I really should experiment with in-between stops to see if there's a sweet spot) the images are not too blurry and there's a small depth of field available.
Argh, I still haven't gotten around to cleaning my dusty sensor/lens elements. .. before the next shoot, I promise!
