I meant behind the lens mount. My Oshiro stays the same length so any extension must be internal.

I just checked mine and at "constant" aperture the required exposure increases by a factor of 8x between infinity and 2:1. (My Olympus 4/3 50mm f2 increases by 2x between infinity and 1:2 which is its maximum).

Both lenses, at at given aperture, give the same shutter speed at 1:2 via the meter. So there is no issue there over which lens to use.

When I used Tamron SP lenses some of them were constant aperture but I don't know which ones.

Volucella inanis

These are from 3 August, using the Oshiro 2:1 60mm macro and twin flash. The flowers are goldenrod. Some images have been moderately cropped.
