Nice! Haven't tried doing any closeup photography with this lens yet, did you use extension tubes for this?

Thanks...I can't remember actually. I had some kenko tubes and I still have a couple Raynox diopters. I sold the tubes because I wasn't using them. Either way you can get some nice close up stuff with this this lens.

I guess I'll find out later today. I do have extension tubes lying around.

I've been contemplating the Rokinon 85mm f1.4 because it's sooooo cheap and sooooo sharp. But I have the Canon 85mm f1.8 and took it for a spin (literally) today. This is my favorite let-'er-rip road and I caught the sun playing with his sun dog.

Think anyone would care if I had two 85mm lenses? :confused:

Let me know if you make up your mind, I have a pristine copy that I put up for sale. More details in the thread in my signature.

I just rented this lens today. I took a couple test shots with it. Looks pretty nice.

Shampoo sounds like an unfortunate name for a hair product.
