Re: Geared Steam Locomotives

I have done a lot of macro, over many years, with macro supplementary lenses on the front of primes. Either a Raynox (I use the MSN-202) or a Marumi +5 Achromat will give you excellent results with...

Re: Age-Related Difficulties

That's more than enough for your "only issue". My sincere sympathy.

Arcyria at x2.5 on A7R Full Frame

Not Oly hardware but it shows the increased depth, over m4/3, on FF. I hope Olympus will see the error of constant fiddling with m4/3 and get out a FF body. It would give greater depth at high...
