    Not really a macro lens, but it's as good as they come for close-ups. Nice images.
     
  4. Very nice, I like the last a lot. Do you have a set of kenko tubes? those would make a super micro lens

    Nice shots, I take it this is the AFS version of the lens. My older screw drive version doesn't focus that close.

    Thanks Greg.

    I know it's not truly a macro but it works pretty well considering. Thanks for the kind words Bob.


    Tom - No tubes. . Would like some at some point but other things are before that.


    Yes Robert - AFS for sure. I really love this lens. . Nice and light and great IQ.
