Don't know why you would want to shoot with any other lens but this one. These are excellent. OK, after seeing Martin's and Mike's super close-ups using the reversed lens technique, I guess I can understand, but for 'normal' macro shots, these are great. :wink:
Are you using the Nikon 105mm micro? If so, then you do not need to use the lens reversal technique. The 105mm will give you a reprod.ratio of 1:1 which is sufficent for just the eyes and their facets.
L-R-Tech is for high magnification of R/R of 2X up to 10X plus.
