  1. Great shot and beautiful colours. Do you have a picture of the right Apo lens fron Nikon?
  2. That is the very nice Zeiss 135mm f2,0 and the Polaroid/Canon 250D close-up lens. It is my favorit as well!
  3. I am engaged in aquarium photography of small colourful shrimp measuring between 10-20mm in length. With a new camera, the D810, I have tried some slightly different options. One set consists of Nikkor 105mm 4.0 AiS with a K3 ring and an P-Nikkor 105mm 4.0 for bellows, two classics in other words. That solution is quite sharp and the viewfinder is bright so the focus is easy to adjust. The picture of the green shrimp is taken with this combination. ISO 64, 250 / sec. Aperture 16. A working distance of approx. 10cm. The next picture of the red shrimp in the moss is taken with Zeiss 135mm 2.0 which has a close-up of 80cm. But using a polaroid close-up lens, Polaroid 250D, the same as Canon's equivalent, and some cropping. The depth of field is always a problem. ISO 64 320 / sec. Aperture 16. Both images taken with two studio flashes. A really crisp macro of 90-100mm would be nice to try! flic.kr/p/Ww3wq8 flic.kr/p/Wdq4vh
  4. I finally did the purchase of a Zeiss APO Sonnar 135mm f2.0. ZF.2. The WD is around 80mm and it's at least twice as far for my photo models. I tried to crop heavily, but I was not impressed with the result. Now I have a set of extension rings to be tested, but in the meantime I mounted a Raynox DCR-150 in the front and tested with an aperture of 18-22. It works quite well but the sharpness is difficult to set. Do you always need to press the pv button every time you want to open the aperture fully for the sharpening setting. I shoot completely manually as the lens has manual focus only but also shutter speed and aperture are manually set. I like the zoom button but the LCD monitor is not in class with my Fuji X Pro-2 or I have not adjusted everything on the camera correctly. Here is a picture from the first attempt. WD about 8", ISO 64, 320/sec. f18 and the little fellow is about 1" long.
  5. As I mention before I do need to get down to about 0,4- 0.5 meters. I am planning to pick up the lens tomorrow!
  6. This is what you posted 2013: As for this APO Zeiss it works at a distance, and it works close-up. It even works well enough with extension, even with a lot of extension, and I hate extension.
  7. Michael, wha is the reason for not using a longer tube? I the IQ suffering or is it cumbersome to use?
  8. Hello from Sweden! Today I use Fuji X Pro-2/XF 60mm 2,5 with a TC-1,4 and 11mm extension ring for my macro photography in a very tight spot. I am now "moving up" to FF with a Nikon D810 and a Zeiss 135mm f2,0 but the closest range is 80mm and that gives me a little to much WD. I like to get down to 40-50mm if at all possible with some tubes. The tube must work with the aperture as I shoot mostly at f8-10 but need the bright clear LCD for adjusting focus. What do you sugest? The objects are mini shrimp in aquarium with a length of about 1". Well I guess I lose the auto aperture then! I can not take time to change the aperture from 2,0 to 10 as the objekts (shrimp) will move away!
