    Re: 8x10 Macro Photography lens Question

    Yeah, so what?

    This discussion is not about the wonders of 8x10, it is about which lens might meet the OP's needs well enough.

    The point of fuegocitos' test shots is that all of his lenses separated fine details equally well. And they did.

    Papi, you didn't understand. A shorter lens will have less, not more, coverage given magnification. Reversing it won't change that.
