Does anybody have advice on a lens that would work well for shooting extreme close ups of a miniature set? Something like a probe would be good for its ability to get into tighter spaces, but the lenses tend to be very slow- I'd prefer shallow DOF for this, without needing to sacrifice too much space for a bulkier lens. I've been looking into the one offered by Innovision optics- anyone have any experience with this?

Tim Tyler posted this link a while back, but I haven't found anything else on the forums:

Any thoughts would be much appreciated.

Thanks!

By the way, not sure if the project will be on film yet, but it may end up being shot HD with a 35mm adapter.
