Not bad Dave, not bad at all. I really like the bee shot.

BTW, I thought that we agreed that you weren't going to buy any more lenses for at least a few microseconds....I mean, six ain't enough??

Heeheeheehee!! :lol:

Just kidding Dave. 8)

Which lens?

Thanks you, Gordon and Dao. I like the second one the best.
As for you, Frank, This is the lense I bought from Scott Sherman and i do still only have six..... for a few milliseconds...... :^)

I am actually having a hard time with getting used to the longer working distance. these are shot from around 10-12 inches. the bee picture has been cropped and enlarged.
I know you had an interest in this lense also. I hope to give it a real workout in the mountains and meadow of west virginia this coming week. I am going on a photo vacation that finishes in chincoteague with some other members.

So this is the 200 Micro? What do you think so far? What is the working distance on these shots?

Frank, there's a cheaper alternative to the Nikon 200mm micro (which is an awesome lens (just tried it out but not enough photo budget to own it))... the Tamron 180mm f/3.5 macro. This lens is excellent, just a little bit less constrast than the Nikon.

Dao,

I've already more than blown my budget for the next 10 years on cams and lenses. So far, I have stuck with Nikon glass, even though it has caused me to miss house payments and meals - no, no, that's not right.... :lol:

I have stuck to Nikon because I read all these comments that it is just subtly better, and I feel like I'm making an investment. Having said all of that, I already have a pretty good macro set-up with the 70-200VR and the Canon 500D. I know that it's not as good as this lens, or probably even the Tamron, but it does keep me from having to carry another mid-sized lens, and it does have VR. :wink:

Someday, maybe I'll jump to one of these. I'm just trying to keep up with what works best for now.

Thanks,

Frank
