I have shot some spring flowers using three lenses:
Zeiss Macro Planar 120/4CF for Hasselblad at f/8
Minolta 100/2.8 Macro at f/8
Sony 70-400/4-5.6G at 250 mm f/11
White balanced using second gray step on COlor Checker Passport Card. Same brightness on white petals. All images are here as JPG and DNG (raw): http://echophoto.dnsalias.net/ekr/Articles/ThreeLenses/
Full image (downscaled) with crop positions:
Camera Sony Alpha 99 SLT. Crops are at actual pixels. Focus on pistils of first crop using live view at 11X magnification. Second crop is for bookeh.
