Pros: _

Cons: _

Opinion: Hello everyone, I'll write, as I'm considering buying the Canon MP-E 65mm target. I'm currently working with a 90mm Tamron macro and the tubesI'm reading a little bit of everything and I find people who highly recommend it and who instead say it's a beautiful lens but very very difficult to use and in the end you motivate yourself and stop using it. I don't want to take staking photos as I should over-equip myself. I have a low-quality micrometric sled and an ring fingerAccording to your opinion, with a little patience Can I take home some nice shots? I had also thought of a macro lens 180mmsarewould you be so kind to give me your precious opinion? Thank you

Pros: Sharpness and manageability

Cons: In my opinion, no one, if you use a lens like this you must be aware of the limits of the scope

Opinion: I use this lens for a long time and, unlike those who preceded me in the comments, I use it only freehand and on subjects in full activity, such as dragonflies and various insects, so the combination with the ring flash is mandatory, in my opinion.rnNon I have any problem of exposure using the Canon ring flash, while I confirm the limits due to diffraction to the more closed diaphragms.rnE 'a goal for true fans of macro photography, for many but not for all, however, can give enormous satisfaction. rnrnHere you can find some single shots - I do not use the technique of focus-stacking - made strictly by hand: rnrnhttps: //www.flickr.com/photos/henry62/albums/72157687903886030rnrn

Pros: Exceptional image quality and solid construction.

Cons: It should be used with knowledge of the cause for photos thought, since it is not easy, at least at the beginning, to be managed.

Opinion: I have this lens for some years and I find it superlative for enlargements over the 1: 1 ratio. Certainly it takes a solid tripod and a suitable light source, like an annular flash. Useful and sometimes essential the micrometric slide. Personally I photograph only inanimate subjects and therefore I do not have big difficulty focusing even if it takes a lot of attention and patience with every shot. I'm not good with the focus stacking but I do not think that for the photos I do is essential. I am content to say, given that with this lens at every shot I open fantastic and often unexpected scenarios. Who loves the macro push, of any kind and decides to allow himself time to capture the desired image, can not not own this masterpiece.

Pros: Constructive quality, incredible magnifications without the need for additional accessories

Cons: Difficulty of use, short distance focus, hard-to-get-out.

Opinion: I bought this used optics, fascinated by the photos taken. Once mounted on my 6d I had to tune not only to figure out just how to focus the subject to be framed, an operation that should be done simply by approaching or moving the lens and then the machine because the ring actually acts only on the enlargements by stretching the lens that Closed has a 1/1 ratio and elongated 1 to 5. All this freehand involves a real treasure hunt in the viewfinder. If you can never point the subject out of the "nothing" and scare you too! The depth of field is very limited already to the lens closed at 1 / 1 and photographing Very small objects like the face of a lego doll, you have to focus your eyes and you will get a portrait with a gorgeous bocked. For 1/1 it can still be used without flash or additional lights, but after 2 days I went to buy an annular macro flash that becomes indispensable also thanks to the pilot light that facilitates hunting all framedra. RnAnd working beyond the ratio 1/1 also change the relationship with the diaphragm completely disfiguring the relationship with the various "f" because, from what I understand, they also multiply .... and you have to experience the right opening finding the Best compromise between detail, diffraction, depth of field. If you photograph something bigger than the needle of a needle, you need to use the not very easy technique of focus stacking. To do this, you need to equip yourself with quality micrometric slides, because with the economical and medium-level ones (including manfrotto) you only work 1/1, after serving something stable and precise, very accurate. By contacting here some makers of the site, I found that they use lab accessories such as Newport San Diego sleds costing hundreds of euros. There are also motorized systems that speed up operations. I, while waiting to buy a motorized sled, I have realized a craftsman's bench with precision linear guides and aThreaded bar to which I then applied a large adjustment knob with an indicator, and with the help of an old stand, I started experimenting with the first stacking focus, getting encouraging results but still far from the photos you see here published . The slide works well, but the real difficulty is to place the bug properly, illuminate it etc etc. Because as already mentioned in magnifying enlargements, the focusing distance with the subject becomes dim, and so the annular flash touches the plane of support of the subject, the tailgate, etc. and hinders the operations. We need to work surgically with tweezers and a lot of patience. All this is simple by photographing dead objects or animals. With living beings, you really need to be very good and expert in speeding up all the operations, and then it is essential to have a complete micrometric equipment, a 2-axle sledge, a rackhead, etc. It is, however, incredible that it will make you spend the whole dayBorn also photograph a simple dead fly.

Pros: Quality construction, optical quality, reproduction ratio achieved.

Cons: No one.

Opinion: 6ugrave; I consider it essential to the high magnification focus stacking, of course, can only be done on a tripod, and preferably with the aid of a slide micrometer; also increases the difficulty of use in relation to the inability to close the iris over F4-5.6 in rr between 4-5: 1 due to diffraction, this turns into pdc really tiny and needs of an impressive number of shots with plans different fire for images that are easy and dettagliate.rnNon is definitely the lens for those who decide to get closer to the macro, but it represents the best way for those who want to try their hand at it, going in search of the wonderful details that only a microworld can donare.rnrn
