Excellent!

Does it seem to me the Nikkor is cleanest regarding CA in the corner?

Awesome, thank you! :D

Can’t show it, since I’m almost an pure field macro shooter - the situation will be the same on a FF sensor. And in my opinion, the Canon lens has less CA.

Will you also test the Olympus 38 2.8 lens? I’m curious about its performance at 4x. Don’t hope for too much though.

I only encountered an error with Raynox on Oly 40-150 Pro lens. Any other combination works without a glitch.

Thanks! All those images are made on a tripod.

I do get some vignetting effect in the corners (not black!), probably due to the 72-43mm adapter.

But worst, the bracketing is always stopping after a couple of exposures. I don't know exactly the cause and I didn't bother to thoroughly look after it, sorry.

Hello! I'm an E-M1 Mark II and 60 mm macro user. It's an awesome combination for focus bracketing in the field! The Raynox lenses doesn't work with my 40-150 Pro lens regarding focus bracketing. They DO work very well with the 60 mm lens. See some of my field work here: https://www.flickr.com/photos...

Base ISO is 100 for both cameras.

Looks like I'll settle for A7 model. It's the cheapest FF camera in Europe. :D

Hello, Sorry for the late reply but I'm very busy in real life. I've always used this lens reversed in the field because the magnifications I usually work on FF sensor are higher than 1X. This was a particular situation when it was used outside the recommended magnification range when used reversed....

Hello, I do have it on my Arca Cube. And yes, it's not 100% compatible with all other plates. It works very well with Novoflex plates (Castel-Q and QPL-AT2), 1 Kirk plate, 1 Markins plate but doesn't work as intended with some Hejnar plates - it requires some careful adjusting of the screw and many ...
