I ordered the lens today from Amazon (on sale $899 and some 4% extra sale). Should arrive tomorrow ($3.99 extra). :) Can't wait.

Are most of the very close bug shots on this page captured with extension tubes? I guess I could wait and see the possibilities tomorrow, but . . .

I got mine a while back but just broke it in yesterday... .at a botanical garden/butterfly place. I still have to do the PP but if any of them are keepers, I'll post a few here.

Such a sharp lens. Incredible detail at 100% on the full resolution image, which is around 80MP.

Wow nice... Did you do this by hand (on a tripod)? or did you have a gigapan or something like that?

I just got the lens today. I have a Raynox 250 (or something like that), but I have yet to add it. I've quickly discovered that f/2.8 and macro don't mix too well. And, shooting at f/22 or so requires A LOT of light. I need to explore a flash. Ah well. Anyway, here's my first shot of a old and out-of-print book (and this is f/2.8 and handheld, so you can see the razor thin focus plane):

or you could try focus stacking of course :)
