Because I personally like it. I seem to be entirely alone on that (certainly here), but as my photographs are primarily for me, I've not bothered changing it.

In any case, I was really pleased in taking a punt on this lens for some Street photography because it's ideal - small and plenty quick enough ...

I like a little vignette sometime too, the lightroom profile for my Sigma 35mm always removes the slight vignette and I don't like it :D

I've never used extension tubes or close up filters before, so I have no idea how they compare. I found a very inexpensive 4 close up filter set by xit - never heard of them before, either, but I am new at this so maybe they're common? I think for the level I'm at now, the filters are enough to play with. Later I will prob. buy a macro lens, but not for a while. I must have had just the right amount of (and not too much) coffee today, not too shaky, lol. I hope I get to see your posts when you show photos using the extension tubes so I can see what they do!

Last weekend we celebrate my sister's 65th Birthday. We took her out to dinner and when the waiter asked how many senior citizens were dining, we all pointed at her. LOL... He wouldn't believe that my sister turned 65! She looked more like in her early 50's.

Anyway, I arranged a bouquet of roses for her birthday. Then, quickly took some photos. It gave me a chance to try out the Kenko's DG extension tubes (set of 3) with the 40mm lens. The shot below was taken using the 20mm tube. In all the rush, I forgot to lower the ISO. I had to adjust the exposure but no crop on this image. Nevertheless, it's clearly not as good and excited as your shot. I need to work on my macro shots and save $$$ to get better lighting.
