Came across this fly basking in the sun on the side of my house.

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/v ... hp?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 :shock: . 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 ...

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?
