Thanks very much Howeikwok! Yes I see that. I did not know that combination could focus so closely. Is that what you used on the eel nearer the end? How close does the lens have to be from the eel to get that kind of shot? A few inches?
I need to learn from you about the dive sites in Indonesia. I have become highly interested in diving there. Raja Ampat is my first trip.
Yes. I do hope we all make it back.
I think the eel was using the 90mm macro lens. For the WWL, i think the subject can be almost touching the lens and it will still focus. the minimum focal distance is quite short if i'm not wrong.
Raja Ampat is fantastic for both Macro and Wide Angle. Coral cover in the Dampier Straits area is the best i've ever seen. Oceanic mantas, schools of barracudas and jacks. The 'walking' cat shark. Lots of macro opportunities as well like pygmy seahorses, nudibranchs, mandarin fish etc.
