Macro with ZD 50mm f/2.0 + EC20 2x teleconverter

Written by Gary on August 24th, 2008

Well, promised I would get out and play with my new EC-20 this weekend, so here are a couple of them using the ZD 50mm lens.

The EC20 means that you can choose to go for 1:1 macro or a longer working distance than with the ZD 50mm lens alone, and as you can see the image quality is still excellent.

These were taken using the Olympus Ring Flash, off camera for the cumquat shot.

First another bee shot, this has been cropped and resized to fit here.

    This image has a large Wow-factor. It doesn’t scare me from investing in a converter…
