You can send that 100L to me JD.... I LOVE the 100mm with my 60D and it's so much lighter then trucking the 5D MII and the 180 around :P

Comically...I traded my 5D MKII and 17-40L + cash for my 100L(which was pretty much brand new) , at first i thought i might regret it considering my fondness for the 5D2...oddly i don't regret my decision...though a 5D2 and a 180L...hmmmmm

Yeah the thing is a beast. I just got it 2 weeks ago and my wrist is killing me from how much I've been shooting with it. In fact I couldnt stand my 5D until I got that 180 and now you'll have to pry it out of my cold dead fingers.

What a lovely image!!! All the yellow is offset and complemented beautifully by the blue!


I sold my 100L a month ago :oops: Within an year I used it like half a dozen times but then I usually shoot portraits and it was never chosen with 85L and 135L to compete with. Looks like all of my flower shots are done with portrait lenses.

Another yellow/blue combo from my collection:

Sad to read this, was looking forward to your Springtime shots Stina, if you want to borrow my 100L for a bit in the interim let me know, barely getting to use it latley with how much i've been working :D

Thanks, JD. :D I will probably start focusing on the hummingbirds now that my wisteria is starting to bloom. I don't think this spring is going to last very long anyways. I think the green will be gone soon. :(

Oh that shot is simply breathtaking. I'm just learning and that is the kind of thing I want to accomplish eventually.

Stina, you still have your G15? With macro mode or manual focus, it's better than nothing for flowers.

This one was plain Av.

^^Nice rose, you did well exposing the yellow.^^


Yup, I keep the G15 in my purse at all times. Between that and my other lenses I should be fine. :D I think I have had the 100mm since 2009 and I didn't use it for quite a while. Now that I pulled it out and started using it again, it breaks. :( Oh well, it's been around a while and I think I dropped it once so it's probably overdue for some TLC anyways. :)

Yeah, those are nice, EBK!

OhLook, great shot. The rose is very well isolated and stands out beautifully.
