"Yet another" question popped up in the head when I was trying a reversed 28mm on the 55-250

Would the objective mounted on the front of the lens give me vignetting and a smaller FoV compared to say a finite mounted on top of tubes/bellows?

Appreciate the patience and inputs :)

Cheers,
Hayath

Thanks much Betty :) Now that reminds me I need to update my profile to reflect where I live. This was shot in my home garden in Bangalore, India. Had used flash to backlight the ant/leaf and that sorta resulted in some of the colors to go pale and hence converted it to B&W A shot which turned out a...

Ant with aphids

Found these in the garden - almost 100% crop to avoid the rest of the ants in the frame http://lh5.ggpht.com/-NiXsK3lEddA/T9Y8DqB8zOI/AAAAAAAAUB8/TVmAHD-2Fso/s850/IMG_0903-bw-crop.jpg Taken with the Tamron 90mm on a Canon 450D, lit with a diffused flash behind the leaf Thought please :) Cheers, Hayath

Ah, then it does make sense to go in for the "normal" flat adapter.
Thanks Rik for being so patient and taking the time :)

Thanks for the reply again Rik :)

So if I get myself another set of ETs and reach 150mm...then using a "flat" Rms to m42 adapter should work better? (since the sides are not goin to be very obvious for reflections)

Cheers,
Hayath

Thanks much Rik for that very calming clarification :) Thank you Steve for the links, but I already have the Fotodiox extension tubes. The M42 to EOS adapter is what I'd need. "Yet another question" - Happened to read that the RMS to M42 cone causes some light issues which affects IQ -> contrast Wou...

2- In general I think so, but I'm not sure. It will be dependent of the quality of your Soligor (reversed wide angle lens?) and the objective. 3- No, if you do stop the tube lens at some point it will vignette, and you aren't going to get better sharpnes nor DOF. 4- Both approaches work fine with t...

A few more questions to ask (in order of importance), sorry if I'm pushing the resistance to noobs :) Question 1: The current set of ETs are about 80mm (physical). Would someone having the RMS to M42 "Cone" give me the physical length of it please? Would like to know if it would give me 150mm in tot...

Beyond lifesize! Foray with reversed lens(es)

Taking beyond lifesize a lil further this time. The IQ isn't that great, yet. But could also be due to the lack of stacking and the OOF areas causing it. Some experimental stuff ;) Ashok was kind and large hearted to send me a Soligor 28mm f2.8 which now gives me much higher magnification. Ebay help...
