I think he's using Nikon camera? I used to face the excat issue with my camera body (D7000).

I can't remember if i managed to get over it or not.. as I'm not using the MLU anymore. I got to check it & confirm.

FrancisCC, welcome aboard! Do you have specific information about forgeries, that is, objectives that say "Mitutoyo" or "Nikon" but actually are not? Or are you talking about objectives that more or less imitate the appearance and specs, but do not misrepresent the brand name? --Rik I recall seeing...

Thanks Fred.. you always encourage me with your kind words. The lighting is my usual method.. 2 flashes and a piece(s) of papers to defuse the lights. Although I do own Mitu5X, I keep prefering the JML over.. well I believe both have advantages & disadvantages after all. As for the weevil shot, I di...

Thank you guys for your inputs & cheerful words. @Pau During my visit to Spain, Javier (Seta666) told me how palms were effected by this pest. Since I wasn't aware about this pest, it surprised me to know that it was globally spread! Here in my place it's a bit controlled.. that's why it took me abo...

Hi Miljenko, This looks like a well build setup.. I do like how portable it is due to its size. I just have two concerns & both are related with your Sigma 150mm mount.. - Is the system well balanced while the rail is fully extended?
