    F11, from about 15 inches or so away. Focused on eyes.

    Even at F11 that is quite a narrow DOF. I'm amazed at how much you have to stop down to get a good DOF when using macro's. thank goodness for CLS!

    I was also amazed at that...
     
  4. try all the way 1:1 and smallest to largest aperture... you will need some USM to bring back some of the sharpness below f/11... or a postage stamp at an angle showing the DOF at 1:1
     
  5. sharp at f/22... thank god for USM

  7. Very nice Bob. I had a momentary lapse and nearly sold this lens! I typically use the 105VR and 70-180 micro. I think I will test it tomorrow in my garden. Thanks for starting this thread Don!
