Wonderful set this, lovely light! Impressed with your ability to get so close with a reversed lens at that magnification.

Thank you ... one (literally) has to get up early in the morning to do so ... when the subjects are still at rest

Interestingly, the truth is reversed lenses have more favorable working distances than the MP-E 65mm or Laowa. For example:


Working Distance at 1x mag:
MP-E: 101mm
Reversed Nikkor: 95 - 102mm (depending on lens)
Laowa 60mm:


Working Distance at 2x mag:
MP-E: 63mm
Reversed Nikkor: 63-64mm (depending on lens)
Laowa 60mm: 50mm


Working Distance at 3x mag:
MP-E: 51mm
Reversed Nikkor: 51mm
Laowa 60mm: Can't


Reverse lenses beat the Laowa at all levels, and are essentially equal to the MP-E 65mm, just not as totally handy. In fact, the MP-E 65mm is (essentially) a specialized zoom lens, reversed, that Canon enhanced with a tripod mount. For this reason, the MP-E has always been one of my favorites
