  2. Pretty amazing, particularly the hover fly pics.
    This 200 Micro is probably the last lens to get before my LLD is cured.
    Cheers
     
  3. Great detail and lighting Jerry, that flash rig is working well for you.

    Martin, It seems that I am doing a bit better with the lighting. Not close to being in your league, however. Continue to use the softbox on the SB800 but changed from the ultrasoft to a minisoftbox on the SB 600. I think that I like this setup much better than with the ultrasoft on the SB 600.

    Thanks, Harry. I highly recommend the 200 micro. Nice to have that 10" or better working distance, especially with critters that can sometimes get ornery :smile: .

    Yes, both flashes on the same bracket as in the setup shown in the photo of the apparatus posted a few weeks ago. However, have gone to a minisoftbox on the SB600 rather than the Lumiquest Ultrasoft. Thanks for the comment.

  10. I agree with you Harry. I won't make any excuses, I have wanted this lens for a long time...but I keep trying to satisfy my LLD with the 70-180. Jerry makes it really difficult when he posts sensational images like these! Nice going Jerry, Penn Camera is going to have to get that 200mm for me from their warehouse! :biggrin:

    Thanks Dave, Beezle, Frank, Crystall for comments/input. Crystall, you will certainly enjoy the lens. I fall woefully short of using it to its fullest.
