    Frell! I couldn't wait so I ordered a set as well. Guess Cindy and I can compare notes in a week or so.

    Jono, if that's a cliché, I should shoot more clichés. Beautiful shot.

    Canon 5D w/DWijis 3.6:1 @ f/90 Stereo Macro lens. Twin electronic flash w/diffusers.

    1: Dandelion seed in flight and in stereo. (Cross your eyes until you see three images and concentrate on the center image to see it in 3D).

    2: Daiascia Hybrid. Same lens. This flower for those who don't know it about the size of finger nail.

    Thanks Cindy and Jorgen for the kind words, I'm afraid it reminds me a bit of Mitch's comments about flowers with blurred backgrounds being too simple and meaningless! Then of course, this is just a humble dandelion.


    HI Terry
    You might remember that I had terrible anguish about whether to buy this lens or the Zeiss 100mm f2 (which is what I really wanted). In the end a combination of practicality (1:1 life size, VR, AF) and my stinginess (£450 rather than £1100) won the day.
    I'm not sorry - the combination of continuous autofocus and VR makes for a really flexible hand held macro, something I just couldn't have managed with the Zeiss. It's been windy here for weeks (until today when it's raining), I don't think any of these recent shots could have been done without continuous focus.

    Added to which, it has a lovely smooth bokeh - no doubt the Zeiss is nicer, but it can't be THAT much nicer!

    There now . . . I've made it worse! (and I still want the Zeiss, my naughty brain is talking about portrait etc. etc).

    Hi Stefan
    Lovely shot
    Right, well, that must be the nail in the coffin of Terry's resistance.

    You'd better nip out at lunchtime and buy one!

    Jono, I think Andree has showed us the waterproof solution.
    In order to be able to do both portraits & flowers, and bugs, you simply need to have both lenses

    that was quite uncalled for - everytime someone says something like that I reach for my credit card. The point of this sidetrack is to persuade Terry to spend money - not ME!

    But No - the answer is, for those moments when I'd use the Zeiss 100 f2 on my D3 for portraits I'd be better to use the 75 'cron on the M8. . . . wouldn't I?

    You are an evil man!!!

    I need to sort out my lenses. I now have....

    16-85 DX
    24-70
    50
    70-300
    18-200 DX

    I bought the 16-85 and 70-300 as my all around two lenses. Lots of reach and at the wide end the 16-85 was supposedly better than the 18-200. The 16-85 turned out to be too slow for any indoors stuff so I bought the 24-70 (Jono - I didn't want more DX lenses and I know you think the range is boring on a D300). I got the 18-200 with the rebate how can you resist at about $400 making the 16-85 redundant. So, once I get off my a** and sell the 16-85, the 105 would be BOTH my macro and portrait lens.

    Now to rationalize my M8 lenses....

    Keep the
    24-70
    50
    70-300

    Buy a AF-S12-24/4.0 DX or AF-S14-24/2.8 and the AF-S 105/2.8 VR.

    For travel I always use the 12-24/4.0 DX and the AF-D 50/1.4

    For one week in Kiew I also took the AF-D 24/2.8 with me to have a small camera/lens-combination with the D200.

    http://view.stern.de/v2/series/37726/all

    In December 2007/ January 2008 when I travelled asia (Thailand, Laos, Cambodia) I took the standard combination plus a 35/2.0 and the AF-S 105/2.8 VR and the D300.

    (No pictures online).

    Re: Macro thread everyone?

    Hi Stefan
    excellent advice . . . . although, maybe I'd swap the D300 for a D3 .

    Right - there's this onion - it's been seducing me, but it's a confusion for other people. I know it's in bad taste to anthropomorphise bugs, but just for once I'm going to do it:


    "I'm lost"



    "I'm not (guzzle guzzle, mumble mumble)"



    "Ouch! it got me"

    Jono,

    those are also great pictures!

    The D3 is really great, but for travel and reportage I would wait for the smaller Nikon FX which will be coming.

    I like the D3 very much on assignments, but for private travels it´s to big and heavy for me (I´m spoiled because I travelled with Leica M in analogue days).

    Re: Macro thread everyone?

    Hi guys!
    I woke up this morning, and I walked to the back of my house. I found some mushrooms!!!
    Yeahhhhhhh!!
    I only had abot 5 minutes to play with it (cuz i need to prepare to go to the office >_<)
    This time I want to do "Macro wide angle" with my Zeiss 25/2.8. I dont want to use ZF 50/2 macro or ZF 100/2 Macro...
    This lens has minimum focusing of 2 cm.
    It's really hard to take a picture of it.
    I dont want to lay down on the wet grass, so i decided to use live view on Nikon D3
    I tried my best for the framing and focusing
    and here is what I got
    Nikon D3 + ZF 25/2.8 @F11 (without tripod >_<) Live view mode on




    CROP 100%



    It's Fun to play around with ZF 25/2.8 (macro mode)
    I should try it again next time, and hopefully I can get a better results

    Re: Macro thread everyone?

    Heelp, now I want that lens too
    The Distagon T* 2.8/25 ZF has a MOD (minimum object distance) of only 6 cm from the front element, according to the datasheet at zeiss.com
    It's almost a wide-angle macro ...

    Re: Macro thread everyone?

    Dammit, Doomed
    This was actually my 'next in line' lens anyway - basically to make up a 'light' kit with the D3:
    D3
    100 nikkor
    58 1.4 v
    25 2.8 zeiss
    but I didn't realise how close it focused.

    and I'm already a wide angle macro devotee . .

    Robert White - here I come :-(

    Re: Macro thread everyone?

    Jono and Andree, take a look at this thread, especially post # 6, Andree maybe you are right after all, that the 2.8/25 will focus down to about 2"
    http://forum.getdpi.com/forum/showth...5+ZF#post18850

    but at zeiss.com they say 6 cm for some reason ??

    Hmm - well, 2" is 5.1cm, so, different, but not THAT different
    2cm is something different again!

    Congrats Jono !
    Look at that wonderful out of focus rendering at f/11 in the first shot in Andree's above post.
    And also look at the out of focus rendering as well in the first picture in this thread (with Andree's D50 shots)
    http://forum.getdpi.com/forum/showth...0648#post30648
    So wild and beautiful.
    As Kit referred Lloyd Chambers, describing the ZF 25 as a lens with personality.
    I must say.

    Re: Macro thread everyone?

    First hit with the Zeiss 25 f2.8
    Well, it certainly seems to focus down to about 2cm

    It's really drab and dark here, but here is a first go with it:
    D3 f8 450 ISO 1/250th very very close!



    Cropped slightly
    Both the flower and the bee were moving, hence I really couldn't 'get it' with the dof of a wider aperture.

    I can see why they don't call it a macro lens though - there is a strong curvature of field - especially wide open (beware the brick wall test - it looks pretty bad!), I'm finding it quite easy to focus though.

    I might start a new thread on it when I've had some more time to play.

    Re: Macro thread everyone?

    Quickie macro test last night with 36mm tube on my CV 58mm SL II. Man does that shorten the distance!

    Much larger than life on my Huey Pro calibrator:


    Speaking end of my Razer mouse:


    I will go outside today and get some proper macros. I may only use the 12mm tube though.

    Jono, I just can't believe that bug shot was taken with a 25mm wide angle lens Amazing.
    Looks promising !

    Congrats, Carlos, with the Kenko extension tube set, I might as well go for a set at some point. Looking forward to see more samples.

    Re: Macro thread everyone?

    Actually, I have never seen one used, but the very high magnification macro lenses for the R system are in these very short focal lengths. There is a 25mm Photar, a 12.5mm f/2.4, and maybe another. They are not 1:1 macros though...more like 18:1

    here's my bug shooting contribution
    just the usual cheating, i.e. the "macro by cropping" trick

    Re: Macro thread everyone?

    Thanks Jono. I have you to thank for the inspiration for that set which I am going to keep expanding. You mentioned that you shoot stuff around your home, on walks, etc. I decided to look for the unusual in the usual in places that I hang out around here. Hence the title of the set: Ordinary Abstracts.

    dlew308... Nice! Aliens invade!

    I'm afraid I ain't got no stinkin' macro lens. But, I do have a lensbaby with a 10x magnifier. Ok, so it's not art. Hand held with the D2Xs, the flash off-camera and propped on an empty Leica Lens box.

    Re: Macro thread everyone?

    While I had the Lensbaby mounted on the Nikon, I decided to try one or two with this Begonia blossom I found in the yard. The lens is not for everybody, it's sort of the anti-sharp approach. But that can work too I think.

    Tim, I love the orange color. Your exposure of the bright orange is perfect. I really like the look from the lensbaby.

    I have never had a lensbaby. I was wondering the other day if anyone had tried a lensbaby with liveview? There might be some potential for some pretty interesting creativity with that combination.

    Dlew308, Nice shot of the invader.

    DonWeston, Congratulations on the new D60.

    What a shame, they are so beautiful. I have some about ready to bloom and I can't wait.

    Re: Macro thread everyone?

    Thanks Cindy! The LB is a fun thing. A little goes a long way, but they're inexpensive and can do some nice things. I never thought of using it with live view. They're completely manual down to adding the aperture disks with a magnetized wand.
