Took the MP-E for a spin in the yard today. There is not a lot of action in the garden at the moment being winter but I did manage to find a co-operative Hoverfly.

MP-E65 1/160 s at F 16.00 with ISO 400

No.1

That lens is a ripper Greg, amazing clarity. :)

The only thing I have in my backyard at the moment are ants, millions of them :confused:

G'day Greg. That's a new acquisition for you? Great shots - esp the first.

Thanks Troy. No, I've had it since Sep last year. I don't use it as much as the 180. It deserves to be used more.
