  1. After looking at the lens lust shots I bought a 180 from Maji in "for sale". In another post GoGo had suggested I try a tube when I got this. So here is the first try. It is still crisp at twice the size.

  2. Very nice John!!! The detail and color are great. I really like the perspective too. I have sold this lens twice with deep regret... I would be tempted to purchase it again if not for the 70-180 micro. Phew!!
     
  3. Indeed it is. I never understood what the bad rap is on Kenko tubes. I don't use mine often but could see no reason to have spent more. It's just a hollow tube with no optics so I really can not see one manufacturers being optically better.

  5. John,

    I see that you are doing justice to the great glass that it is. Very nice image. Crisp and colorful.

  8. Thank you all for the comments. It was hand held but if I use this any more I'll use my tripod. "CrazeeBoutMyD80" :smile: I have lots of fun all the time BUT the most fun was when I opened my D80 from B&H bolted on the 18-70 shot a butterfly and almost fainted it looked so good. Nancy has my D80 now. So light no tripod I was FREE. :smile:
     
  9. Very nice, indeed!
