I hope nobody minds the nifty with macro tubes....

This was shot with the nifty and a 20mm tube at 1/5, f/8, 800 ISO. This is the full frame, resized to 25% to fit here. Sharpening was set to 3 in DPP. Light was natural, diffused light from a window. I focused manually using a tethered laptop connection and Live View, watching the laptop screen, and slid the camera back and forth along the table top (no tripod used) until the focus was as I wanted.

I don't use this lens for regular photography, but as a cheap way to explore the "macro" world it is not too bad at all. With more tubes (I can go up to 68mm) I can get larger magnifications than this.

Thanks. Here's a shot with 68mm of tubes. This is with different lighting conditions. Exif is 1.0 second, f/16, 800 ISO. The shot is uncropped, just slightly sharpened in DPP (3 out of 10), and resized to 25%.

Oh, and for good measure, I've added a photo of as much as I could fit in of an AA battery with 68mm of tubes. I'm guessing that's a magnification factor of about 2X, or perhaps a little more. You can see the DOF is only about 1mm or 2mm at the most.

A question for pretty much everyone that had taken really sharp photos with this lens. What did you set your sharpness value to? (in 30D, I think it goes from 0 to 7).
I typically used 2 for portrait, but I can't really say that the photos that I took as sharp as the ones that are posted here.
So I'm really wondering whether I should increase the sharpness from my 30D camera setting.

Thanks

QUOTED IMAGE

usingthejohn - If you don't mind my asking, how far away from this bud/flower were you when you snapped the picture? I'm still learning, and trying to get a feel for what I see in life compared to how it looks through the lens, and what lens is best.

Great shots by the way, love the first with the water fall in the background.

I don't know whether you'd consider my shots sharp, but I shoot raw with neutral picture style and sharpness to 0. I sort out sharpening in post processing.

In DPP, if I nailed focus in the first place I will set sharpness to 3 (out of 10). If I'm a little bit off with the focus then I will go up to 5. If I feel the need to go above 5 then I question whether the photo is worth keeping. If it is still soft, but I really want to keep it, I may go to 7 as a maximum.

In Lightroom, if I nailed the focus I will leave sharpening at the default 25. If I need to sharpen a bit more I will go to 75 without much concern and 100 if I have to (out of 150). If I think I need to go above 100 then, once again, I question whether the photo is a keeper.

The "macro" shots I posted recently (on page 149) were processed in DPP with sharpening set to 3.
