I guess someone found out that using MP-E 65 with Komura Telemore 95-II for infinity focus. I had an old Canon FD mount TC so I gave it try with my MP-E 65 and it does focus to infinity. It is cool and all that but is there a real advantage by using the setup vs using 100mm macro lens?
Thanks in advance and sorry for my poor English.

No advantage over using a 100mm macro for shots at less than 1:1 from an IQ point of view apart from you although do get rather good DOF. Main point for shooters like me that use a dedicated macro rig is it enables me to take my MPE-65 rig out on excursions where before I would have taken my 1:1 Tamron 90 rig out. This means I can tackle just about any size of subject fairly easily.

Thanks for the info Brian.
BTW, how long have you been shooting macro?
Every time when I have a question, only you have the answer most of the time.
You must have a lot of experience.
Again, thanks for the info.

Probably because I'm retired I have more time to answer questions :)
I started doing macro in 2005 so nearly 6 years now.

New the answer to this one as it was me that found the effect with a very old Pentax fit telemore converter I had. I was looking for ways to reduce the minimum magnification of the MPE-65.
