GH2, ISO 160, Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 Macro @ f/11

First image at f/8 and I found I needed more DOF, so remaining images were @ f/11

DR... sure works great... the only thing is you will have to stop the lens down on an EOS body first. Even at f/8, and with the small-ish m4/3 sensor, you can see how little DOF there is with this lens when you approach 1:1 magnification. In the first image, the dime is laying on the circuit board and it's not even in focus. I switched to f/11 thereafter. Didn't want to stop down beyond f/11 as I wanted to keep sharpness as good as possible.

Great shots! How are you getting the aperture to close down and stay closed down when you remove it from the 5D?

thanks! they make adapters with aperture control, simple as that. The only thing these usually start at F/2.8 so it probably won't work with larger apertures, but works perfect on F/2.8 and narrower lenses. I think I paid about $40 for mine (bought it off amazon).

I also figured out that you can mount an EF lens on a Canon body, select an aperture, take a shot then remove the lens without turning off the camera and the lens remains at that aperture.

From memory... Select aperture on the EOS body, hold down the DOF preview button, then either unscrew the lens or turn off the camera. One of those - or perhaps both.

I'll be trying this soon with my coming soon EM-1...
