After 6 years of contribution in this forum there is a good reason to introduce myself again. I was reborn this winter: I had two heart attacks couple of days apart in two different cities. Thanks to quick 911 actions and capable surgeon who widened my coronar arteries (clogged 95-99%) with 3 stents, I survived.
Better yet, despite double infarction my heart efficiency dropped by 10% only so I can live and work again normally.
Last year's ccupation change helps a lot in recovery: after 10 years working as technical advisor for camera sales I switched to product photographer for packaging design studio. The job now looks pretty close to one of my intense hobbies: macro photograpgy (other being designing high end audio gear, R/C planes building and flying and 3D printing).
Besides stack shooting insects I do lots of macro lens testing using my precise DIY macro rail and Imatest software. I'm happy to help others in raising their knowledge about the gear we use in this hobby so you can expect many new posts from me presenting known and unknown macro lenses!

Welcome back to life. Seems like lens testing may be hazardous to health, with both you and Robert nearly leaving us this year.
