Focus Bracketing on Canon / Sony Mirrorless Range

Hello Everyone! I am looking to update my Canon EOS 500D as it is coming to the end of its life. I am looking at either Canon or Sony mirrorless ranges, ideally with focus bracketing capability.

Re: 20x Finite Objective Suggestions

I would violently disagree that 3mm is "more than enough" working distance for most macro. True, an experienced photographer can make 3mm work sometimes for some subjects. ....

Wanted: RMS thread objective containers

Hello!

I am after 3-4 RMS thread containers for some objectives. I am struggling to find any to buy in the UK without importing, for an extortionate fee.

Of course I am happy to pay for them and postage :)

Best Regards

Owen
