    this is simply amazing! I need your lens!!!

  • Thanks!
    However I didn´t use my MP-E 65 mm 1-5 x macrolens for this,but my EF-S 60 mm f2.8 USM macrolens together with extension tubes.

    Jimmy a great macro capture – love the colours and the depth within them, it almost has an abstract feel to it – amazing that you can get that from EF – S 60mm, I will have to get mine back out and brush it off.

    Cheers John

  • In combination with a set of extension tubes you also can get great results!The MP-E 65 mm 1-5 x macrolens is a lot sharper though.
    Thanks for your nice comment,John.
