Really nice set, I've just got a Sigma 180 and also have D300, so, its nice to see it's capabilities in a good set of hands. Did you use a tripod for these ?

Thanks.

No, I didn't use a tripod. I find that with the R1C1 I don't need one. When I don't use it I can usually balance the lens on my leg or arm and get sharp shots but not as consistently as with the close up lighting system. I use the tripod sometimes if I'm just shooting stuff in my yard but I hate taking it into the bush. Tried a monopod but just can't get the hang of it plus it always seems to be at the wrong height at the wrong time (ditto for the tripod):-(
