Thanks ... almost didn't get out this morning due to the mist/overcastness.

This lens isn't perfect, but it's good for the price!

For anyone who uses the macro capabilities of this lens but runs into lighting problems, I found a nifty $25 macro ring light that is just awesome for the money. I put up a thread about it here. https://photography-on-the.net …p?p=15496558#po​st15496558


I am serious....and don't call me Shirley.

Thank you! I put it in my wish list as Amazon is out of stock now, but being sold by a 3rd party seller.

Thanks, I think dropping the blue channel worked well.

It was not the best light but I was in a section of town that I didn't want to be at night, so I took what I could get.


This one too, but still a work in progress with the processing:

Well, I couldn't wait for reviews anymore so I went ahead and just ordered the new version of this lens from B&H.

Dumb stupid question here, anyone use a close up filter with this lens if so which one? My shooting season is about to get started weather wise wondering if I need a filter to pull in those macros. Thanks....
