I had a few minutes this evening so had a dig through some available files (most of my Ext tube experiments are on an external back-up drive disconnected for safe archiving) and found this, which I share as a bit of fun.

Titled "The Sad Fairy" its the centre of a phalenopsis orchid shot using the 60mm macro + 26mm ext tubes and is the full frame just resized for web.

DOF is wafer thin but it gives an idea of what sort of magnification you can get (I'm guessing its about 3X mag)

Not something I would do as a normal thing though Conrad, I much prefer the results of using the bare lens then cropping

I tested my 45mm in a quick portrait session with my nephew's fiancée - 1/320, 2.8, Aperture Priority:

Something I noticed recently; I spent a day travelling through a small portion of Dinosaur Valley a couple of days ago, and I stopped to take some shots of a bit of amazing landscape, and it was so quiet out there, the E-M5 was deafening.Smile I didn't do the first upgrade for the camera, which you guys said made it quieter, but I did the last one, and it didn't change the sound of the IBIS at all, seriously, I really noticed it out there in the wilderness.
