Been dying to try this lens out... this shot was a total accident. Just got lucky. SHALLOW DOF. This is 170mm @f5.6. Minimal crop.

AFAIK, this macro lens actually doesn't lose any light as you focus closer (only when you zoom) which is pretty rare for any macro lens from any manufacturer.

I'd own one, but the price is prohibitive and the tripod collar is by all accounts kind of substandard. This is really what irks me about the big-buck telephoto lenses that Nikon releases. Nice glass and nice lens in general, but with a whimpy tripod collar.

That is what definitely what you would call a narrow DOF... Any more narrow and the whole photo would be just "Bokeh"...LOL.. Great capture... look forward to more shots..
