Comparison: Marumi DHG200 vs. Raynox DCR-250 (Sigma DP3 Merrill)

First of all the most important thing: I wish you all a very Happy New Year! 🙂 In the following posting I’d like to show you some images that can make your decision between the Marumi DHG200 and the Raynox DCR-250 easier. Both achromatic lenses are a good and cheap (~ €70) option to improve ...

DP2 Quattro, Marumi DHG200 and Raynox DCR-250

While taking photos of the Christmas tree ornaments it struck me that my two achromatic lenses, Marumi DHG200 and Raynox DCR-250, have increased Sigma DP2 Quattro’s magnification factor quite considerably, despite DP2Q’s short focal length. I found that quite interesting, given that achromatic lenses are supposed to increase the magnification factor more, the longer the ...

Sigma DP3M Marumi, DHG200 and Raynox DCR-250 on a real macro photo stroll

Here on my blog I’ve already shown some photos I shot with my Sigma DP3M and the achromatic lenses Marumi DHG200 and Raynox DCR-250. However, those were only test images of a tape measure in order to find out what magnification factor the combination achieves. Besides that, I’ve documented the fan replacement on my neighbor’s ...

Macro Power: Sigma DP3 Merrill + Marumi DHG200 + Raynox DCR-250

I’ve taken quite a few nice macro shots with my go-to macro gear (Sigma DP3 Merrill and Marumi DHG200 achromatic lens) in the past. Being curious as I am, I’ve wondered for quite some time, how this combo would perform, if one were to screw an additional achromatic lens on to the Marumi. Since this ...

Exercise for my Marumi and DP3M

I love macro photography. I love watching macro photos as well as shooting them. What I don’t like is carrying heavy equipment all day. For this reason, I think the combination referred to in the title is hard to beat. A tripod, heavy macro lens and DSLR may be able to offer more, but how ...

DP3 Merrill, Marumi, Macro

The last few days, I’ve been on the road again with the Sigma DP3 Merrill and the Marumi +5, and what can I say, I am very pleased with the shots. Some of the pictures are, in my opinion, the best macros I’ve ever taken. I particularly like the photos of flies, especially the colourful ...

Review: Sigma DP3M and Marumi +5

So far, I have only been writing reviews on individual lenses and cameras. With the Marumi DHG 200 on top, the DP3M transforms from a tool for portraits, details and close-ups into a genuine macro-camera, so that the achromatic lens and the Merrill now need to be viewed as an entirely new whole. On this ...

DP3M with Marumi and without

Just like on my last photo tour, I’ve had the DP3M and the Marumi +5 this time with me as well. Shooting macros with this little set-up is a lot of fun. With the achromatic lens on the DP3M you can achieve a max. image ratio of around 1:1.6. Compared to a DSLR with a ...

Additional shots taken with the DP3M and the Marumi +5

Over the last couple of days I’ve been carrying the DP3M with the Marumi +5 with me. Sadly the sun shone only for brief periods of time, making it hard to find insects and spiders. The few, which appeared in front of my lens, were smallish flies and spiders, unsuitable to demonstrate the effect of ...

Sigma DP3M and Marumi +5 achromatic lens

I was entertaining the idea of buying an achromatic lens for my DP3 Merrill for quite some time now. After a lengthy research I’ve decided to get the Marumi DHG 200 aka Marumi +5, which is also being sold under the “Dörr” brand. First impressions are very positive. The small close-up lens transforms the DP3M ...
