Canon Magnifying Lens

The Canon MP-E 65mm 1:2.8 1-5x Macro lens is a comfortable alternative to a bellows device. This magnifying lens is calculated for magnifications between 1:1 and 5:1, and thus, goes far into the closeup range with the highest image quality.

The Zoerk macroscope is an aspherical, 2-element closeup lens of top-notch quality.

Fly consumes sugar. 1/125 sec at f/16; 50mm normal lens reversed on bellows; small flash LZ 22 manual with softbox. The depth of field is only a fraction of a millimeter, which makes it extremely difficult to pinpoint the optimal point of sharp focus. Here, the point of focus is on the sugar crystals as the most prominent detail in the picture. If it were to lie just slightly closer, e.g., on the edge of the fly’s head, the sugar crystals would be out of focus.
