Hi,
For anyone familiar with macro lenses, I'm wondering if there is a blanket formula for compensation. I'm trying to understand exposure compensation for older lenses.

I'm not sure that I understand the magnification ratio in real terms. I believe that the idea is that if you are magnifying something at 100%, or 1:1, you compensate by opening up 2 stops. Or if you magnifiying the object by 200%, getting closer, or 2:1, then you open up 3 1/3 stops. Is this the idea?

If there is another way of explaining magnification ratio and exposure compensation, I'd appreciate it. Thanks.
