Okay, I pulled out my X=5, Y=2 for the first time in a while on a full-frame body, i.e. fp not Df (excuse me for the violation to the rule :P )

Roughly at 1:1 1:1.28 magnification and at f2.8.

EDIT: the initial magnification data was wrong.  Sorry for the confusion.

Thanks, Eric.

The two berries in the second photo show interesting optical effects.  I tried to focus on the larger berry, but there was too little depth of field to put the sepal (brown triangular thing in front of the berry), the front of the berry, and the small projection on top of the berry (pistil) all in focus.  The photo I posted showed what I decided was the best compromise focal zone.  Even so, focus is a bit soft due to aberrations; remember that the lens is on extension.  I get a slight sense of almost a 'glow' about the berries, which may be due to spherical aberration.

Spring is early this year.
It may just be my samle, but even with this light from the side, I get a lot of glow @f1.2, it goes completely away @f2.0

A trick is to avoid glow with these fast lenses, at full opening, is to underexpose the image by for instance approximately one stop, then in PP raise the exposure by similar amount, except the very bright highlights, by the same amount approximately ;)
