Danke sch?n.....

Thanks Dirk, how to create more DOF with aperture set on 22 the max. for that lens. .. I tried a lot but I dont get any further than this result. Need some help I guess from a specialist like you...

Fons, I think that the problem is not the dof, however very important, but a point where you are focused. It is preferible focus just a little before " moving" the camera and not the ring of the lens. The dof, as you know, is greater at the back. It's not very very simple eh! but you must to test.

Thanks Sergio, it is not easy you can say that again, however I keep trying. Thank also for your advice.

Juan I hope you understand what I am trying to say in German.

 I can give you my fax number maybe you can make me a copy from that article and fax it to me so I can try again to get more DOF in my reversed lens pictures.

Best regards ,
