Usually they won't allow "big" looking cameras in the casino area. Yesterday, I just decided to give it a go at the Hard Rock Casino, Las Vegas, till somebody stopped me. Luckily nobody did. Guess they might have if they saw me setting up a tripod and spending too much time working on settings and composition etc. So here are some samples of my quick and dirty job.

The whole set can be found here: http://www.flickr.com …e/sets/72157627​258841494/ (external link). Need to go back to find out tags for the ones I'm not able to recall whose they were.

I've been reading about the problem with the hood fitted you can get shadow fall off if you use a flashgun. I've been useing for sometime the siggy 105 macro lens and the front element is deep and never had any problems with regards to shadows going into extreme full 1:1...my point is when looking at the lens hoods for the canon they don't look as deep or are near enough the same depth as the siggy's 'built' in hood...i hope this makes some sense??!!

P.S..... a mistake by me, i was looking at the ET-67B lens hood on ebay for the EF-s 60mm macro and in all honesty would probably be the better choice if anything just to protect the lens element?

I've never had the slightest problem with the hood obscuring the flash, but then, I never use on camera flash! My advice is to get an off-camera flash cord and use that excellent 430EX gun and a reflector if necessary.

Thnx for the advice. I'll look into getting a bracket, luckily i already own an off cam cord.

Yepee...i got my new lens earlier than expected. Here are a few shots taken in the back garden...The one thing i will be checking is making sure the the AF is working as it should be, you know the forward and back focusing issues that can occur.

I found the pictures in this thread really helpful in helping me decided on this lens, so now that I have it, I thought I would contribute.

It also makes a terrific medium telephoto lens; almost all my favorite non-macro pictures have been taken with this lens.

gatorlink - incredible!!! awesome first shots.. mine were nowhere near this good.. still aren't!

Can I ask, what did you use for lighting here ? Off-camera flash / natural / combination ??
