Looks like one of the "casualties" in the server crash was my post of the macro lens working distances chart, so here it is again, data gleaned from various internet resources and manufacturers' data.

First half of the chart: info for lenses operating at 1:1. Where a diopter, tube, or TC is needed to get to 1:1, this is noted in the comments column.

Middle row: Data for the Nikon 70-180 operating at its max unassisted magnification (1:1.33).

Bottom half: info for lenses operating at 1:2 where this was available to me.

Additional contributions gratefully received - if your favourite macro lens isn't shown here, please send me the relevant data for a future update.

Regards,
Tony
