    So, are you going for a wide open aperture, or is there a specific reason for using certain aperture settings?

    .... I'm going to try this out real soon. I'm sure I'll figure it out through practice.

    Wide open aperture to have a lowest vigneting. I've vigneting in all configuration that i've tested. The eyepiece give me the best result and after the 130mm. With a 50 mm reversed, i've a lot vigneting but a bigger magnification. I must have also the higher focale length (zoom 4x) on the camera to have the less vigneting.

    Thanks, I'll keep that all in mind. That is why I figure you would want the largest aperture. I'll have to test things out. I have a Panasonic FZ15, so depending on how well my autofocus works, I may be able to zoom in quite a ways. That could make for some cool shots.

    I have to say, your setup isn't the first time I've heard of it. I imagine it is used more than I realize, but your photos are perhaps the best I've seen with that setup.

    Really excellent work on everyones part.

    Using the Tamron 28-75 f/2.8|100% Crop of Peppermint Amaryllis showing focus detail on the flower Anther (yellow pollen sacs). Not a Macro but pretty good closeup cropped I thought.

    color contrast

    I`m back!. Had a little computer problem that kept me off the site for a few days. I did still practice. Took this one last sunday. I liked the color contrast.

    Very nice the bald eagle`s chick ...

    Thanks a bunch Bald Eagle. I was hoping to take an evening shot but had to settle for high noon. Thats a RAW converted image with no Photoshop USM (unsharp mask) applied, straight from the XT/Tarmon combo. That same image with my Sigma needed a little USM to bring out the detail.
