    These shots were taken with a Canon 50D body, mounted with a MP-E65 lens set to 5:1mag, a bracket mounted 580EXII flash with a soft box provided the light.

    I don't use that rig much these days since I put together the twin flash 5DMKII with the MP-E65.

    Would you recommend this as an all-around camera?

    that 5DMKII is a great rig, but gonna hurt the wallet a bit!

    I have been wanting to do the back to back lenses for a while now but just havent had the time or money to spend on it.

    You do great work, might I ask what if anything you use to post? Im a fan of LR myself.

    The 50D Has been a good camera for me. It was discontinued when the 7D came out. The MP-E65 is a macro only lens and can not be used for anything else. If I were looking to buy a semi pro body now I would go with the 7D.

    Yeah, the rig that I now use is costly but I have progressed to the point now that to improve my image quality more, I had to move to the pro gear.

    My work flow is:
    1. iPhoto.
    2. Topaz plugins (CS5) I have the bundle. Great programs.
    3. Sharpening in CS5 using unsharp mask.
    4. Back to Topaz.

    I have never used LR but know people that love it, and I believe the Topaz plugins will work with it.

    I am just leaving work, I want to get back to you on the lens bit.

    mmmm chocolate covered grasshopper.

    Looking forward to hearing your thoughts on lenses.

    As for flow, I have CS5 but just never liked it that much. That may also be due to the fact that I never really properly learned how to use it so anything I do is difficult and time consuming. Where in light room I can make it all happen fairly quickly and mostly easily. I have heard of the Topaz stuff before but have never personally used it so I cant say what will or will not work with what on that.
