    Anybody shooting Macro's with G1? Share your best.

    And tell us what you used to get these Macro's. I am curious on what equipment and settings used. All tips are welcome!

    Lets kick off...


    G1, FD adapter, Tokina ATX 90mm, F360 external flash
    ISO 100, 1/160sec, f/5.6


    G1, FD adapter, Tokina ATX 90mm, ATX Macro Extender, F360 external flash
    ISO 200, 1/640sec, f/8


    G1, FD adapter, Canon FD 100mm, FD 50mm Extender, F360 external flash
    ISO 100, 1/160sec, f/11

    Who's next...?

    Close-ups and not "macros".









    A custom made 12.5mm f/1.4 lens, c-mount extension, G1.

    this one with an Olympus Pen F 38/3.5.

    Hi Vivek, great shots! I really love the last one, and the first is also nice. Looks like the bee is following the path :-)

    How is the Olympus Pen mounted on your G1?

    I haven't tried many macros yet, but here's one early on with the G1/FD 50 f/1.8 and 12mm extension tube--weeping cherry buds with rain drop


    Another with FD 50 f/1.8 and 12 and 20mm extension tubes stacked (echinacea)


    and another with the FD 135 f/2.8 and 25mm extension tube fiddlehead from Christmas fern--just emerging. I didn't have a black board or cloth, so put my Domke 3Xb (black) behind it.


    OH, forgot this gross one LOL---I was getting ready to throw out the dog's water from a stainless steel bowl and saw the reflection of the flying bug. Taken with the 45-200


    I have quite a lot of closeups--some taken with extension tubes, a few tried with Cokin macro but not many actual macros.

    Salvia - Zuiko 35mm macro


    Marigold - Zuiko 35mm macro


    Sugar Snap Pea tendril - Zuiko 35mm macro

    I''d really like to see see a "native" 4/3rds macro lens from either Panasonic or Oly, along with a matching extension tube set.

    @Milapse: That Sigma is doing a nice job. What mount is that one?

    @Diane: looks like you know how to handle the extension tubes in combination with the native fd lenses. What shooting distance do you get?

    @Btanco: Wow looks like I have to get myself a Zuiko 35mm. Man I love the sharpness and brilliance there.

    I posted these a couple of months ago. When fully open these flowers are less than an inch across....

    A couple of snaps using a 36/1.4 Macro Switar.

    From the front yard ( an obviously sick pigeon that has taken refuge for now):


    (f/1.4, ISO100)


    from the back yard.



    (f/2.8, ISO400)
