-Jason I was wandering what lense you you use with your EOS 20D for those exteme close ups. I shoot with a Rebel XT with a 100mm f/2.8 macro, I was just wondering, if I was to guess I would guess the MP-E 65mm f/2.8 macro.

I use both the lenses you listed, to give me continuous zoom from 5X out to infinity. It's the perfect combo. I also use the MT-24EX macro flash with polarizing film over the flash heads and a polarizing filter on the lens to get rid of the glare from the flash. And of course a tripod is necessary.

I've got an article in the works about my equipment setup, but it's been delayed a while since I have several more urgent things to work on.
