In Topic: Olympus 60mm First time shooting - tips?

I guess my tolerances are somewhat looser than yours!  I was expecting the difference between +5 and +10 to be much greater, not only 10% or so.

 

Now I am wondering what exactly the advantage of a +10 would be on this lens. I know people use them, but I'm not sure what situation would call for it.

Now fixed.  Jeez, that's embarrassing!  Especially since I framed the ruler that way deliberately.  But thanks for catching it, as I should have.

Small Collingwoods Chromodis nudi . . . 

 

Stunning shot!  You must be chuffed to get that on the first outing.

 

I'd be curious to know what your max magnification ratio and closest focus distance is with that combination?

 

I would have really liked to test the CMC but it's not available where I am, and I was not willing to take the leap of faith required to buy and ship one without testing.

. . . you may have to repeat your experiment underwater.

 

Fair point, and something I am definitely going to try.  But when I asked that exact question here a while back, the answer was the same as above - the Subsee will give the same performance dry as wet.  I am not smart enough about optics to remember why.

My conclusion is different - the results from the +5 and the +10 are the same magnification with different working distances, so I think that I would prefer the +5

 

Anyway, too right, its going to be a real challenge to get within 50mm of a pygmy, responsibly, and light it well!
