I have just learned that the 24/3.5 II has a very good close up ability: 1:3. Combining this with its TS ability should give some very interesting results. As I am very interested in close up photography I wondered if any of you have exploited this ability. If you have, please post your pictures. TIA.

I have the first version, but try it with a 25mm extension tube.  You can focus on pollen sitting on the front element... ;-)

Lovely site, Dave; those fog shots are amazingly beautiful. I'm paticularly stuck by those longish lens shots of ridges and river banks.

Simple WA close up is less interesting. I already have 12mm tube, 10-22 and 17-55/2.8 IS (not to mention 60/2.8 and 100/2.8 IS). I'm interested in WA close up + TS, for the special effect enabled by the TS.

Yes, that's what I was referring to.  The ability to use TS up that close is fun.  I said 25mm but meant 12mm.

Thanks Rob, I'm now using a 90TS more and more because I like the isolation a moderate telephoto provides.  I visited Michael several months ago and after reviewing some photos he said, "You need a 90TS."
He's just full of good advice...

I have the nikon lookalike - the 24 mm 3,5 PCE.  

Especially tilt is very interesting for you can change the ( shallow) depth of field just how it works best for you.
Also with 24mm you can shoot macro and show the larger environment at the same time.
I have done some macro photography with fisheye and that is also very interesting

Indeed. It's something that can be very useful. I once saw the images of a guy doing dragonflies that way. Dragonfly in focus, habitat somewhat blurred but recognisable, very effective.

These are lovely images. Can you please provide the TS data?

It is only one image.. a total and a 100% butterfly part...
That is one of the things they still have to cover in the exif -data- the shift and tilt...

From my memory- No shift and some forward leaning tilt.

Otherwise the buildings would be more vague..

with an extension tube, the focal plane is practically touching the lens element.  Amazing closeup capabilities.  I have only briefly experimented with macros using this lens.

You mean 12mm tube on the 24/3.5 II, right?
