I actually use a little cheapo canon lens that I removed the front element from. It's insanely tight macro, and you have to be literally 1/2 inch from the rings to even get the shot, but it's so dramatic that I like to use it. It has a focal plane of about 1-2mm, so it's really hard to pull focus with manually, but the results are rather gnarly, I feel.
How does removing the front element magically create a macro lens? Never heard of that. Very cool.
I started a thread about this like 6 years ago...can't believe it's been that long. but anyways, here's a run down.
Yep, that's probably where I read it once, then I found the lens in an old camerabag my wife had laying around, it came back to me, and voila, cheapo ultra macro. cheers
