[] Yousef to be honest I can't remember but these are around 2-3mm long I think, and this is shot onto a 4/3 sensor so between 6:1 and 9:1 at the sensor I guess.
[] Fairly enough.. I was just curious to know how big was it... & to be honest with you, I keep forgetting the magnification of my shots too! :)
