Just got this fine lens, after years of wanted it.
It is a rather heavy and bulky lens, perhaps best fit to studio work (macro, extreme macro, and stacking) but some use it very well in the field also.
So, on a cold but sunny November day, I did just that: test it in the field on some invertebrates found under the bark of two trees.
I’ve used all magnifications, 1 to 5x, with apertures from around F/8 to F/13. All on the Canon 6D at ISO 1000 to around 1600.
It’s a superb lens, and I’m sure it will be the same with it with stacking…
More shots on November 5…
