    Yes and no, it is not really that simple. Focusing is more accurate with the 100mm 2.8 with a longer focusing mount but its wider spread of focus will also mean a less than even image sharpness over the focusing range. The infinity may be excellent but the near focus will drop to acceptable. With a shorter focusing mount and a reduced focusing range, image quality can be more even over the focusing range, although not reaching the excellent level at infinity of the longer focus mount. It is all about compromises and optimizations.
    But photography is all about art and is dependent on the user not the equipment. I used to have a friend who was a contract photography for many top Hong Kong blue chip companies who could take really astonishing pictures of rubbish dumps, dirty alleys, people randomly, and very ordinary things. He was also a passionate collector of cameras.

    the bigger flies came out this evening so i got another chance to take some closeups. i need a lot more practice with handholding techniques coz i'm really struggling to maintain focus on the eyes.

    damn, these flies are ugly!

    i'm a photography hobbyist i only just started with macro photography since i recently bought a macro lens. before that i was interested in badminton photography. i don't have any other pics of small animals yet but i'm practising whenever i find small bugs around. so far i'm only getting 1 decent picture out of every 5-10.

    if you already have a telephoto lens and don't want to shell out for a macro lens then you can get by with a closeup filter attached to a telephoto lens. i'm tempted to get a closeup filter for my macro lens so that i can get even more than 1:1 magnification.

    Close-up lenses are positive lenses that are mounted on the front of the lens like a filter. But quality is not great and the magnification is limited. For quality close-up work macro lenses are best as they are optically corrected to provide the best image quality at close distances. If you still want bigger magnifications from macro lenses always use bellows or extension tubes, not close-up lenses as the latter will degrade image quality.
    Or you can try to do it on the cheap. See if your lens can be mounted by reversing the lens. If you can get an adapter to attach the front of your lens to your camera body, you may get "free" close-up capabilities, which will be sharper than using close-up lenses or filters.

    I wonder if a reverse ring can be used together with a macro lens! Isn't the front element too far away from an object when using it reversed?
