A piece of graph paper with ten 1mm fine divisions separated by heavy lines 1cm apart; medium lines 5mm apart was placed on a light box. The camera was mounted on a macro focusing rail which was mounted on a tripod. The shots were made in SHQ mode at f4, ESP autofocus using the remote.
For the super macro shot the lens to subject distance was 1 inch. Using a +2 and a +4 diopter to get approximately the same magnification the lens to subject distance was 3.5 inches in normal focus mode.
It has been stated on discussion
groups that the barrel distortion in supermacro mode is noticeable and
the close focusing of 1 inch that is necessary makes it difficult to light
