You are right : http://www.bobatkins...f_50_layout.jpg

I read this from Lifepixel website :


We recommend using a prime lens with the least possible glass elements and coatings, we’ve been successful with the Canon 50mm prime lens. You still need to make adjustments, shoot at higher ISO, wide aperture and in strong, direct sunlight when the UV index is highest (10am to 4pm).


EDIT : sorry for hijacking the thread..

We have not wandered to badly off the original posting.

The OP used the Yongnuo 50mm F/1.8, which as far as I know is essentially an equivalent lens.
