    Sigma 150 macro f/13 ISO 640 1/100" Forgot to bump ISO up for higher shutter speed.

    Nice work Jim,

    I can't say I see anything where a higher shutter speed would have helped.
    Maybe the odd leg moved?

    Looks sharp enough to me and it's not really moving that much.

    What sort of macro ratio were they shot at?

    Well done,

    Very nice Jim, good detail.
    How far off the subject would you have been with the Sigma 150 lens?

    Hi Dave,
    Yes,the slightly blurred leg.The 150 is 1:1 macro ratio.

    Hi Keith,
    The lens was about 2"to 3" from subject.

    So my 1:3.something isn't going to match this!

    Thanks Jim,

    My other option might be to use my old Nikon E-series 50/1.8, both with tubes and possibly also with a reversing attachment? (i.e. tubes to filter thread)

    Back in my film days I had a set of Pentax screw extension tubes and even (I think), a bellows on a rail affair, shame I can't find it now - although that would also probably have been Pentax screw thread lens mount.

    Cheers, Dave

    Hi Jim,

    They're both terrific shots!
