    the AF hunts a lot when i stack them.. so i didn't even bother. i'll have to try some flower macro outdoors next time. :)

    do they make these in sony mount? id like to try a small one with my 100 macro. yes you need more lighting.
    i tried using a 2x teleconvertor on my AE1 for macro, again i wish i could focus the damn thing.

    edit, on my camera the penny is that big at the full 1:1 range
