    I have a D70, and because of the 1.5x factor I can't use my old 55 micro
    with the slide copy attachment as it crops the slide. Anybody come up with
    a gizmo to copy slides: And yes, I know a "real" slide scanner will do a
    better job.

    I found a zoom slide duplicator at the BHphoto web site. No endorsement,
    just found it.

    I used to use a video camera to record slides to put in home movies, and I used
    a close up adapter to get in close enough... I made my own slide carrier after
    seeing a commercial one... and installed an air-spaced achromat in it as a close
    up filter... I got the lens out of an old 3M copier!

    Maybe you could fit a close up filter to one of your lenses...

    The adapter I saw came with a diopter and an extender for long-ish
    telephoto lenses:
