Does anyone find this lens has trouble focusing in low light? Even with the 6D's center focus point, I find it can hunt more than my other lenses. It's still one of my favourites, but I'm using it less indoors because of the hunting, unless there's a lot of light.

At macro distances I'd say yes but mine seems to focus fine on my 6D at longer distances.

The lens needs more light and late afternoons in the garden can be tricky. Sometimes I'll go to manual focus in order to get the shot.

I often use manual focus. As this f2.8 lens needs much more light than my 50mm f1.2 by comparison.

I often use mine for handheld shots, true 1:1 macro and otherwise

Finding a balance between a good DOF and and needed SS to stop motion can be challenging.

My first post and I thought I'd post an image of one of my favorite insects. Yes I love butterflies for their beauty and finding a crab spider in the garden with captured prey is great but these guys (although this is probably a gal) I just find fascinating.
I have gone so far to get the egg casings and have them hatch in a homemade terrarium and then release them into the garden. I don't normally see them during the summer but once in a while I will see one in the garden bushes and I will snap with what even camera I have. (sometimes a cell phone)
Most all of my garden work is handheld but this was while this lady was in the terrarium so it's on a tripod. I used two lights on pocket wizards and my numbers are (Canon 50D, ISO 250, F14, 1/80th, and obviously 100mm.

If anyone wants to see more images I just did a blog article on the setup but PM me if you want the link. If you have questions about Mantids let me know.
