They say those spiders can see themselves in your lens, and will jump at it. I've only snapped one, and he never jumped. Just as well, I probably would have freaked out lol!!

LOL

Yes, they regularly jump on my lens and diffuser! In fact a female green jumping spider which I photographed today (and am about to post) jumped on the lens about 10 times on the space of about 5 minutes, and I had to keep encouraging her to get back on the leaf so I could take photos :)

My new lens arrived yesterday from B&H. :-) It was pouring rain so I couldn't do anything outside. I did try out a couple of shots inside and it was amazing! I sold 2 other lenses (including the non-IS 100mm macro) to get this one & I wasn't sure that was a good decision until the new lens arrived. Now I know it was. The IS definitely DOES make a difference! (Also, I haven't heard any noises from the lens, at least so far.)

Is is a fabulous lens. Very quick to focus as long as you give it some contrast. Will hunt for focus if there is no contrast. Not just for macro, it is a great all rounder. I have taken portraits, landscape, product, food, etc.

Have fun with it! :love:

I really should blow the dust off mine and get back using it. (I definitely will do when I have a camera that works).

We love this lens for portraits just as much as macro-work! A bit of Halloween-Themed Fun  :p

I have befriended a Paper Wasp who has chosen a Sacred Bamboo bush for his nest location, in our back garden.:-)

Such a sharp lens.

You're a braver man than me if your paper wasps are anything like ours in the Top End!
