I’m sure I’ve read somewhere why Nikon named their micro photography glasses as macro. But anyway, I’m not using Nikkor glass for my macro photography, I’m using an excellent Tokina 100mm f/2.8 Macro. But somehow, the image I’m getting from the lens is not as close as I want it to be. Example,
So to get closer, I attached a Nikkor 50mm f/1.4D in front of the Tokina to get closer, I attached it using a 55>52mm adapter. This setup got me a 2x magnification (1:2)The working distance from the rear element was insane!! about 1cm….
But, I got a nice closer image.
And the details is enough for me to crop further.
So, I’m quite satisfied with my current setup and now to get a few more nice samples.
