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

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’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 ...
