I like this lens better than my 50mm for quick shots like this one.

Like you guys, I have been enjoying my shorty-40.

I picked up a cheap ebay reverse adapter to try a bit of macro with it and have been pretty happy with the results. These adapters are small and easy to include in a bag for some ad-hock macro fun.

In daylight, 40mm reversed, f/11 (I think), handheld.

Anyone else find that the lens sharpens up quite substantially stopping down from f/2.8 to f/3.2? Or is it just my lens?

Any chance you could post direct comparisons of the phenomenon?

When using the lens reversed, how do you control the aperture? Do you use the depth of field preview/turn it off/reverse it method I have read about, or is there a more practical way?

Thanks

I just got this today, I think it seems a bit sharper than my 50 1.4, does that seem right or is my 50 sucky?

This seems like it'd be a fun walkaround lens on a full frame. 8-)

I am planning on getting 2 of those after I get something that will HSS and act as a master. As far as I know only the Canons will do both of those.

On the contrary...
Over the week, I did some major researching and I purchased the Nissin Di866 Mark II
Overall, same features as the 580EX II

Master, Slave, High Speed Sync

and one cool thing about it, is that it has a sub flash for a soft fill light when you bounce your flash.

I just received it today and I've been playing with them all day.
I think I just killed my eneloops from a complete charge haha.
Super easy to use too.
Only problem as far as I can see, is the "buzzing" sound everyone complains about, and the cheaper plastic quality. If you realize, that it is less than half of a new 580EXII, those flaws are easily forgivable.

Cooool! I did't remember that the 866 could master... I knew it could slave and HSS.
Looks like my next shopping trip just got cheaper :)
Thanks for the heads up!

I find stopping down to F4 makes it razor sharp.

Yes, I set the aperture with the lens attached normally, press and hold the DOF preview button and remove the lens. I don't turn it off however. Takes a little practice using both hands, but gets easier.
