Katianna species, 0.25-1mm these being various instars ie not adults which are around 1mm. Good to see they don't mind freezing temperatures.
Taken mainly to test 7D which I have bought having sold my 1DMKIII - most would see that as trading down but for macro the 7D has advantages, 1.6crop for smaller subjects and 18mp for cropability plus my elbow doesn't like the weight of the 1 series and the video option can be fun.

Nice, No.3 is my pick. As to the 7D Mmmm! I don't know; 18MP squashed on to a 1.3 crop sensor ? Are you happy with the results? I don't just mean macro shots.

Happy so far but I only do macro work and mostly at ISO 100-200, still have my 40D (great camera) so could compare cropability/noise if anyone is interested- both are 1.6 sensors but 8MP v 18MP.

Yes! I'd be very interested. I've just invested in an MT24ex so I won't be changing my 1dmkIIn for a while but I'd be very interested to see your comparisons, you never know; some long lost relative may leave me something in their will.

tricky one, I have both but neither long enough to judge which has the edge for macro. FF is nice in that you can get full body shots with the MP-E65 but for smaller subjects the 1.6 crop should in theory be better depending on effects of pixel density on resolution.

without dishing the 7D I am now of the opinion that the 5DMK2 would be your better option.

I'd like to hear your thoughts on how the 7D crops for you after you do a few.

I'd really like to know how you even find these bugs to shoot, let alone shoot them. :)
