Igor's recent post encouraged me to spend a few hours in my garden and give the R1 its first macro engagement (only used it for people shots so far). Since I bought the UR-5 this week I used the 60/2.8 Micro exclusively today.

I love the R1, also because I am a lazy tripod user :smile: , and with this combo you can get very good results hand held.

Here are a few of the better ones:

Actually, this is a terrible weed but gives a very nice photo subject - Stellaria nemorosa (flowers have a diameter of about 5 mm).

Another weed (Glechoma hederacea)

Finally, my daughter put an end to my session. She was a bit sad because I preferred to play with my camera instead of her. It was a good coincidence because the batteries of the R1 gave in anyway, so I took a last shot of her - more than 1 stop underexposed because of the low batteries but since I shot with ISO 100 the pic could be saved without problems.

Could you resist this look? I couldn't.

I understand about the tripod avoidance. Those are good shots including your daughter who encouraged you to put first things first.

Thanks! Almost thought my post will go unnoticed :smile:
I also wanted to do similar shots with the 85/2.8 PC + 500D but was too busy on monday.

... including your daughter who encouraged you to put first things first.
Oh yes, she is very good in this.

Cheers
