Could have used a little more depth in this shot:

Wow JoeyBowman I like the color in your bottle photo. Lots of great shots here! I'm going to have to come back and post some of my own with this lens. Hope some others can post some of their examples too.

I just ordered one of these used. Very curious how it'll work for me, and it looked from the pictures like this might have the newer EX barrel coating.

I already own the Canon 100mm and a macro-takumar 50mm m42 manual lens, so some comparisons will definitely be made - especially between the Sigma and the Takumar - which is legendary in it's simplicity as well as an oddball in bokeh at F/8.
I hope this will be able to fill the void that the Tokina 35mm macro left me when I sold it to move to full frame. I simply love the look of wider angled macro for flowers and nature.

Edit: nevermind... The crappy seller fell through by emailing me "sorry, I already sold the lens" after agreeing on the price but before sending me his account number ._.
Guess I'll have to play with my Tak some more for now.


Some of my lenses focus beyond infinity...!

I just bought myself one of these and can not wait to get my hands on it... The joys of living in the Arse end of nowhere means it is going to be next Saturday before I get my hands on it :(

Good news, I found another one and just received it :)
Got a better deal on this one, so quite happy with this. I had it shipped to my work address, and of course I forgot a camera body today, but I'll take it for a spin tomorrow. Looks nice and compact though. This might be one of those lenses that can earn a permanent place in my camera bag...

Side by side comparison with the Macro-Takumar 50mm f/4 preset coming very soon. I just have to find / setup a decent scene in both 1:1 range as well as a normal (near infinity) image.
