    This was taken with a Canon 6D mounted on a microscope with a 4x UPlanSApo objective with N.A of 0.16

    Depends on "new"? I have had this one for 2 years now. I sold the Nikon E200 more than 2 years ago. They cannot be compared as they are different classes of scopes.

    Sure. Since I am mainly a Canon shooter, I have used their 100mm macro lenses (all of them) and the MP-E 65 5:1 macro lens - all brilliant.

    The older one gets, the quicker time passes. :blush: Did not realize you first showed the Nikon that long ago. It was also a great setup.

    The new kit is very impressive .:drool5::drool5::drool5:

    I'm amazed with these pictures. Nice job! Thank you for sharing. I had no idea these little guys had berry-shaped eyes. Very interesting.
