I would think it would. The task at hand is to juggle working distance with magnification.

I would think it would. The trick is to create a large working distance to improve your DOF over conventional macro lenses, while still trying to fill the frame with the subject of which you want a macro. After that, allow the camera's resolution to do the rest.


Tried it this morning on rails. I couldn't focus with 3 extenders on and converter but managed it with converter and just the one 36mm tube. The pics weren't so good though as it was poor indoor light with a halogen on the subject and my focusing (crucial) was off. Must be doing something wrong and my eyesight ain't all that good when it comes to manual focus

It is purdy good.

I really love the composition of this image. The treeline looks so freakin' cool! I try and try and try to incorporate distant treelines into my wildlife & bird photos, but very seldom am I able to pull it off as effectively as you did here. I think the key is that you attained complete separation between the eagle and the trees, and there is no overlap of the two. What a great "environmental portrait" !!!


"Your" and "you're" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"They're", "their", and "there" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"Fare" and "fair" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one. The proper expression is "moot point", NOT "mute point".

Thank you. I did bait them and there were about 5 flying around so that helped. Heading off to the lake this morning and I'm going to give this a go again this weekend.

That is also what I think I am seeing at 8/10s. I wouldn't shoot at f22, I would bring that down a bit to help. Yes I only use the middle tube out of the 3 pack I have, coupled with a 1.4x.

Could be. It was on a tripod obviously but I back on to a railway track and when a big cattle freight goes through, there's a tidal wave in the toilet bowl, let alone camera shake :lol:

While not an insanely small crop, it was fairly small, since I was experimenting with the 35mm f/1.4L (on a 7D2), and the FoV was fairly wide. But it turned out marvelously.

This time, experimenting with the 200mm f/2.8L II and the 7D2, but mindful of cropping later (due to this thread!). Sigh, I always get reminded with this 200mm that the MFD is fairly large. Before upload to POTN, this crop was 1618 x 1618 out of the 5472 x 3648 pixel frame, or about 44% of the smaller dimension. More cropping would be possible, but I preferred the way it looked with this crop.

This is a real crop, JPEG OOC, save for a tiny bit of sharpening. The original was 1294 x 1294, so fairly close to POTN max limits. Would so love to have either the 300mm f/2.8L, or the 400 mm f/2.8L. Someday. Meanwhile, this was taken with the 200mm f/2.8L II, plus TC 1.4x II.

I'm going to duck for cover after I post this but here goes...

Is there any reason cropability shouldn't be just as good on the 70D? Aren't they essentially the same sensor?

Don't know. Probably not if the sensor is the same. You just need to advertise it ;-)a

They are probably the same for cropping, but that's no reason to not brag about the insane cropability of the 7D2. :-)

Still, per Teamspeed's starting this thread, the detail remaining after cropping is just nothing less than astounding!

I did a double-take myself, and will not be able to look at dragon flies quite the same way again! :-P
