Re: 60mm Macro

I nearly got a 60mm macro the other day too Mark but just couldn't agree a price with the seller. Looking at a DoF calculator then at 60mm, f2.8 and a subject distance of 19cm the DoF is only 0.06cm. As you said pretty small! I guess people tend to use flash to be able to open up the aperture at f8 the DoF would be 1.6 mm. Stacking certainly does seem to be your friend with this lens especially if you don't want to use flash.
