    Default Perfect for those Magnification Lovers

    seems to be a current trend trying to get big big pictures of small small things and lots of peope raving at all that.. regardless of composition and what not..

    this is one of the perfect products for these Magnification lovers!! i'm in no way affiliated to these companies but i just happened to receive their catalogue in my inbox.. looks awesome

    ok you may have more pixels than a medium format camera? possible?


    so what if d3/1dmk3 can do 8-11 FPS? 15frames per second capture..


    but but.. if you have shaky hands cuz you pcc(play chinese chess) too much


    trying to peep through the viewfinder with a freaking long extension tube and a reverse lense moving forward and backwards thousands of times trying to focus? well.. no longer! handheld..

    you can come close, if you buy more lenses for it, and of course accessories (sounds pretty typical of a dslr hobby no?)
