My wife spotted this shield bug in the kitchen and I moved it outside and put it on a flower. It must have been thirsty because it started drinking rain water right away.

Tech Specs: Canon 70D (F16, 1/250, ISO 100) + a Canon MP-E 65mm macro lens (1x) + a diffused MT-24EX. This is a single, uncropped, frame taken hand held.

The bonus shot just to show you what can be done at high mag and Fstop in a single frame.

Thanks Toby and Brian :)

Was hoping to find something to point the camera at since I'm working on a new diffuser.

Thanks folks :)

I took a second sharpening pass at the 5x shot and it looks even better (probably won't update it though). The original pass looks good enough for me.

Love the detail and texture. The last capture at 5X is particularly impressive. I would be interested to hear what your view is regarding defraction appearing at f14 using 5X.

Everyone has there own personal "pain level" where detail is concerned. For me it's the individual cells in an insect's compound eye -as long as I can resolve them then I don't care about the fine texture detail that I'm losing. My biggest problem right now is that I'm treating every image the same in post, and applying the same level of sharpening regardless of the magnification and Fstop. That 5x shot could be sharpened a lot more without looking over sharpened.

The funny thing about diffraction is that it's really independent of the magnification -it's the size of the aperture that's causing the light to bend and spread out into a cone. We just notice it more at higher magnifications because all of the defects in an image are being magnified more. For most APS-C sensors green light is starting to diffract at F2.8 so I just don't worry about it -not like I'm gonna shoot with a F2.8 lens wide open to avoid it anyway...
