Currently using F80 with a 28-105mm len with macro function and I've a few questions on Macro Photography...
1) With my setup, how can I increase the magnification of the subject without increasing or decreaseing the focus distance? Teleconverter or Extension tude? I can't seem to fill my subjects into the full frame.... Is there another alternative to get what I want?
2) What type of flash should I get? The macro ones like the SB-21B or a SB-80DX? Will the SB-80DX produce a shadow if it's mounted on my F80 and not at the side.

With my current setup, I can go up to as close as around 25cm from the subject.... And with a production rate of 1:2 for my len, I still can't fill the subject into my frame nicely. A lot of empty space around...
If I add a teleconvertor or an extension tube, then I don't think I will have enough light as my f stop is only 4.5 at 105mm focus length..... minus a few f stop with either the teleconvetor or the extension tube would put me in the range of maybe somewhere around f/8 to f/16? That's why I'm thinking that if I am to get a teleconvertor or an extension tube, then I'll also need to get a good flash.....
Or should I just save up and get an AF 105mm f/2.8 Macro? Hehehehhehe....
