Wide open. DOF was probably only half a millimeter (or 0.125/37 inches :D).

Stunning shot.

Just got my lens today, I'm amazed at how fast it is, and how quiet!

These are the first test shots I took:

By the way, I'm still learning my way around this lens, does anyone know how to prevent the DOF from being so brutal?
Even when shooting something the size of a pea you can only have one part of it in focus. How do I get the whole thing in focus?
Normally of course I'd reduce the aperture to get greater DOF but indoors that just means a very slow shutter speed.
Is there no answer to this when shooting indoors other than getting a more powerful flash?

f/32 -- That is why this lens has is -- when you are that close, shallow DOF is just a fact of life. :)

f32 would make everything very dark though. Probably reduce the shutter speed to 1/20 or lower.

Well, I never said it was a great solution. ;) But that, along with a ring flash and a tripod are the way to go.

Ok thanks, I have the tripod but not the ring flash so I'll look into that.

Hi,

Any one tried this lens on a 5D full frame? How is it. I saw a photo taken with this lens and 5D with extension tube?

In theory it shouldn't fit a full frame camera because it's EF-S so unless it was on some sort of converter....?

Yes if you click the link in the post it was a 20mm Kenko. Pretty neat that it worked!

Wow!
That's either a really big snowflake or seriously close supermacro.
