After cuddling, talking and feasting he sat on the doormat right by my patio door for quite some time. I lay on the floor with my macro lens and shot his eye. Both were taken through glass...very dirty.
Love the razor thing focus in the first profile shot; you can see the curvature of his face.
The second shot shows the reflection of a rug inside my studio and also a tree reflected in the glass door.

Thank you, Paul. They are a little underexposed as it was getting dark. But I was just happy to see him.

Glad he's back but you've got to stop posting his pictures, every time I get a feeling of deja vu:lol:

(And that 100Lmacro is very good for cat portraits.)

Thank you kindly! How can I stop posting this beauty?
Your shots are even crisper; I couldn't get the same quality. Perhaps it was the dirty glass door or maybe I should focus manually. Compared your EXIF to mine and perhaps the high ISO is the problem it the SS. Will have to experiment.

Just kidding, I hope you can post lots more!

I think your focus is spot on but dirty glass can be a killer. Also the quality of light is very important, if everything is spot on but the light is murky you get a blah picture.
ISO with your combo should not be a problem, see the picture of the eye, ISO 2000. SS can be a bit of a problem, even though the IS helps your hands the cat is rarely sitting absolutely still so either a higher SS or a lot of pictures in a row and hoping 1 or 2 are sharp(and I don't think there is much of a difference between our shots, biggest difference is my subject is female:-P ).

Renata,
funniest cat thread ever.
It could be the shutter speed, 1/60 is an eternity with cats and a 100 @ 2.8. Window glass will make it soft but there is the tiniest bit of movement. I have the non-L and I've made many trash images because of slow shutter speed at macro distances.

I prefer Pachelbels lesser known work, Canon in L and the 99 cent menu club.

Guess what? He's back!
Marched into my studio loudly telling a long and convoluted story and I understood every single meow as lovers often do:love:

Inside my studio talking and cuddling.
And having late lunch.

Kevin, it is the funniest cat thread ever and I love it and I'm sure the other cat nutcases do too  :p
I think it was the SS, I have just shot his eye at a very short SS but a relatively high ISO because the devil shows up late.
I used to have the non-L 100 mm macro and I did't trash too many; actually my lens was quite good but I didn't shoot cats back then.
Here are 2 links to shots taken by the non IS 100mm which I no longer have. Admittedly, I used a tripod. https://photography-on-the.net …showthread.php?​p=17572655
https://photography-on-the.net …showthread.php?​p=17566947

And I'm sorry these are not cat shots but I wanted you to see the quality. Not bad for the price.

Renata,
Mine ended up trash as my ss was too low or at min focus I was off a mm or so. My copy is as good as it gets but back then my skillset sucked.

Kevin, yes, slow SS can definitely kill a lot of pics.

Here is my sweetheart again. Came into my studio and complained a lot about my absence; I was in Houston on the weekend. I cuddled him, shot some pictures and as i was processing them he made a nest on my bed!
He frequently lifts one paw :)
And here is his injured nose...poor thing.
