Man ! You folks are really getting good at using these tubes. I have a set but need to get out & practice with the 70-200MKII. I dont know the best combo to use on the MKII but did try the 12 & 20 at 125mm but i dont know the optimum combo & FL for this lens yet ? I have the 5D MKII but figured using my 60D with the swivel screen plus manual focus & LV 5X on a monopod would be the best route to test.

Regards, ;)

Cheers :)

It was an interesting setup... I was actually working (from home) when I found the spider, I rarely see these so couldn't pass it up. I had a white piece of perspex which I placed on my laptop, I angled the screen down a tad and fired the flash into it... It worked ok though :D

That makes it even cooler. I love those impromptu setups.

What fstop are you all usually having to use to achieve a dof that allows more than a millimeter of in focus area?

It is tricky with dof with the tubes... I start with f11... and go as close to f20 as possible, but the problem is to keep the speed high enough.

Normaly I focus by moving the camera, and make alot of shots... when I am moving back and forth, at least one of those 20 shot turns out well.

I find the 135L much easier to use with the tubes, on the 50mm or less the area that are sharp is extremly narrow.
