Thankyou for the clarification/confirmation regarding the 2x objective Regarding the image you've mentioned, you could post the eBay item#; if the listing ended less than 90 days ago, the image might still be available online. There were a few available during the course of the past couple of weeks including the earlier and later versions of the Apo ($$).
Yes, I'm rather fond of them Gene They are all stored in nice containers toog4lab wrote:What a lovely gaggle of objectives.
I was intending to add more details regarding the presence of 10x MI in the photographs. There are so many varieties of the Nikon M Plan 10x 210/0 .25 that I am still unsure what a regular Nikon M Plan 10x CF objective actually looks like. We need a picture, if someone has one handy.
The 10x objectives will provide approximately 10mm of working distance. When you start using a 20x objective, then the working distance begins to become an issue; that is why I went for the objectives with ELWD specifications where possible.
The objectives I use the most are the 10x and 20x. The lower power objectives are also very good; but there are a number of dedicated macro lenses and reverse-mounted enlarger lenses that will also provide excellent results in that range.
