    The macro season has begun again on this side of the world :smile: I used my 18-200mm VR together with the Canon 500D, I am quite happy with this combi.






  2. Nice shots. I especially like the color on the last one. Looks like you have a nice combination there. I have always thought about picking one of those 500s up but never did. I may have to now.
  3. delightful series!!

    Rich, Dave and Troy thank you :smile:
  6. Very nice set!

    #4, #5 and #6 are really special. I like the clean background helps to focus on the flowers!
  7. Nice pictures - I especially like #4, #5 and #6.
  8. I have always liked shots done with the 500D. I should probably quit admiring them and buy one of my own. Thanks for sharing this series of images. The bug is my favorite.
  9. Roosje, great photographs - shows what terrific shots this little thing can achieve. It's very handy when one does not want to carry around a separate dedicated macro lens.

    Wonderful colours! :smile:
  10. Love the colors!

    yowie zowie! All nice Roosje.
  12. Great shots, Roosje! I also use the 500D now and then, mostly on the 70-200 to make use of the VR.

    I have no particular favorite but #3 and #4 somehow speak to me.

    Thank you all :smile: I thought I would miss the macro function of my CP 8800 but this combi is even better. I love the fact that I also have VR. My dream was to have the 105 VR macro lens, but I am in no hurry anymore to get one :rolleyes: 
  14. Hello Roosje,

    You've convinced me! Very nice, I hope I do as well.
  15. wow. im quite amazed.
