    Just wanted to share some photo's of the OM 135 macro with 65-116mm auto tube and the OM 28 / 3.5 in the reversed position.
    The first photo of the Day Lily was taken with the 135 macro with about 3
    feet of working distance. You may have to click on the photo's to enlarge.

    The second photo is a different specimen, taken about 1 foot away (extension tube was adjusted) and fine focus was used on the lens barrel.

    The third photo was taken with the OM 28 / 3.5 wide angle lens reversed, this lens can be found very cheap at most shops that sell used equipment. I purchased this copy brand new in the early '70's. You can see the very narrow depth of focus when extended, and also the high magnification. The actual purpose of this shot was to determine if the lens is sharp enough to use for "stacking". This photo is of a stamen of one of the above Day Lily's.

    The next photo is of the OM 135 macro with 65-116 auto tube, fotodiox adapter and the E-P2 mounted on an OM focusing rail. For photo stacking, this entire assembly will be mounted on a Proxxon milling table for the fine focusing that's required.

    The next photo shows the OM 28 / 3.5 mounted in reverse.

    The last photo shows the OM 28 / 3.5 with (2) 7mm MANUAL extension rings, they act as a lens shade and are required to lock the aperture.

    Thanks for viewing,
