MacGyver'd myself a macro lens! - khalidibn - 07-11-2009 10:19 AM

So I would ohhhh so love to own a Canon MP-E 65mm Macro lens...but I don't!

So I took my EF 90-300mm and EF-S 18-55mm and attached the 300mm to the camera and taped the 55mm onto the end of the 300mm the opposite way to MacGyver myself a macro lens.

Here's some photos of the setup!

I decided that I would use a 20p piece as my subject.

This is the end result!
