Superb Charles ... the detail is very sharp ... what was your lighting & diffuser setup? ...

Nice to see quality closeups that doesn't involve a Mitutoyo ... was the Olympus expensive? ...

Thanks all!

GemBro...
The diffuser was exactly as shown in the last picture I added to this posting:
http://www.photomacrography.net/forum/viewtopic.php?t=17656
Except I used two fiber optic light guides for the illumination instead of the Ikea lamps. (The 50X needs a lot more light than lower magnifications).

The "list price" for the Olympus 50/0.50 LMPLFLN is about 10% less than Mitutoyo 50/0.55. (These were older numbers from memory... checking Edmund Optics they are now selling the Olympus for about $220 more than the Mitutoyo Shocked . But you can find these pretty regularly used at much lower prices). Also... the results from a 50/0.50 or 50/0.55 objective can look very good on a screen, but in a large print or at 100% pixel peeping don't expect to see the fine detail you will see with something like a 10/0.28 or 10/0.30.

I nearly said bet it's expensive due to the quality of the result ...

Thanks for the info ...

Beautiful, especially the first one. What objective have you used in the first photo ?

Very nice, as always!

I especially like the use of selective focus in the first two. But I'm wondering, did you have to use the trick of shooting extra images with a stopped-down aperture to retain enough visible structure in the OOF areas?
