    Bought this from Jonathan (Macroach) about a month or so ago and just started to find time to play around with it.

    This lens is super sharp and should make for some fun times.

    I'm sure there is a reason (although I haven't researched the reasons yet) but the DOF on this thing is freakish!! (A Macro thing I'm assuming) Even at 5.6, 8 or 11 I still get pretty shallow DOF. At 2.8 it seems off the charts.

    Anyway, here are a few of my first attempts:

    NIKON D80    ---    60mm    f/16.0    1/100s    ISO 100

    NIKON D80    ---    60mm    f/16.0    1/100s    ISO 100

    NIKON D80    ---    60mm    f/8.0    1/200s    ISO 100

    NIKON D80    ---    60mm    f/8.0    1/1250s    ISO 100

    NIKON D80    ---    60mm    f/11.0    1/60s    ISO 100

    NIKON D80    ---    60mm    f/16.0    1/100s    ISO 100

    NIKON D80    ---    60mm    f/14.0    13s    ISO 100

    NIKON D80    ---    60mm    f/16.0    20s    ISO 100

    Those are some great shots. As for the DOF the closer you are to the subject the smaller the DOF.

    Thanks Troy and thanks for the info on DOF. That makes sense based on what I was seeing. Some of these shots are at f/11 and still very shallow DOF.

    Thanks again.
  4. Nice Work!
