Congratulations Robert on your work using infinite micro lenses,
All are impressive
You have now used a Kenko AC CLOSE-UP No.5 on this,

You have previously used a Raynox 150 in you other work.

What are your comparisons between these two as a tube lens?

I have been working with a Kenko No 5

Very interesting. Weevil scales could rival butterfly scales in their photo-genic-ness.

Thank you very much Len :)
I got the Kenko AC CLOSE-UP No.5 from a friend.
I have heard that this lens should not be bad as a tube lens. I haven't used it often.
At the moment I can not see a big difference to a Raynox DCR 150.
But I'll keep testing it.

Regards Robert

Spectacular photo :)
One question please: I have similar objective (Olympus LM Plan FI 20x/0.40 BD) and I think this is good objective but I have some difficulties to have good sharpness :(
In this photo what is distance from sensor plane to rear thread of tube lens?
Thanks
Antonio

Thank you Antonio.
I don't have a BD version. Did you close the lens light channel?
I set the Kenko lens to infinity. The distance from the Kenko lens to the Olympus lens is 50mm for me.
