Comparison of 3 macro lens setups at 5x magnification
Below is a series of images shot using either the Canon MP-E 65 mm f/2.8 or the Olympus OM Zuiko 20 mm f/2.0 setup. All images was taken with the lens set to f:8.0 (not effective aperture). The Canon EX14MR was used as flash lighting using E-TTL. All images were shot as RAW on a Canon EOS 10D and converted to JPEG using FileViewer 188.8.131.52. The images below have been resized to 250 pixels wide.
