    Well a set up really........

    Micro Nikkor 55m f3.5, Nikon PK-13 Ring and adaptor.

    All were bought second hand from Ffordes and are in mint, as new condition at a very reasonable price.

    From the very quick shots I've taken with the E-M5 and GH-2 that sure is some lens.

    Appologies for the very quick and dirty picture....

    Hi Dave.
    This actually brings up a question I always had about 1:1 macro and :43:
    Does the magnification multiply by 2 like it does with the focal length?

    Thanks,
    Jorg

    That was the first test I did.

    OM-D E-M5 sensor is 17.3mm x 13mm as we all know.

    Focusing on a ruler..........

    The lens alone, at max extension, showed 34.6mm on the LCD giving a magnification of 1:2.

    The lens, at max extension, + the ring, showed 17.3mm on the LCD giving a magnification of 1:1.

    Which is exactly what it says on the lens markings and what it does for FF.

    I started to read through the link but gave up, I thought it lost it's way somewhat.

    My little test says it all.
