So sharp and clear, nice job! This lens just keeps on showing its worth in the price/value metric.

thanks. the bird and spider are sharper at reg size but those are cropped quite a bit, the moose is only cropped just a little.

I have been thinking of trying out some extension tubes on it. I would love to be able to get closer to .5x magnification (which would probably be good enough for me).

Putting together an inexpensive beginner kit for my mom. Got an XTi + 18-55 IS kit for $60 (!), the lens was broken (internal AF ribbon failure), fixed it for $3.55

Then I picked up a nice used 55-250 IS here on POTN for $100.

Here's the result. I'm a bird photographer, so these results may not be typical, I'm not sure my mom will be able to replicate these any time soon (well, they don't have juncos in central Europe anyway) :)

Wow, Gabe! Fantastic captures! I don't think I've ever gotten anything remotely that sharp out of my Two-Fifty... How much (if any) post processing did you do? The clarity you got is absolutely brilliant.
