    Yup, that's the P. emarginata you gave me!

    Beautiful pics, Peat. Very crisp and well exposed. Something about the snowy background makes them look really nice too!

    Peat.... I think minimum is about 1m
    LOL, your last squirrel pic... too funny, that is one healthy squirrel, nice pics!
    Do you find the 70-300mm to be good general purpose lens?
    Ive used my 70-210mm Series 1 Viv, but obviously AF sure would be nice

    Dev, looks like there was some shake in the cube pic.... is the issue consistant?
    That lens shouldnt have any issues of anykind, really should be as good as it gets... an f2 macro, sheesh....

    I don't think there was any movement since I used a tripod. Do you mean the way it has that sort of doubled bokeh at the back of the cube?

    Also, I decided to fix the few odd spots from the fringing on the cube. I forgot to take that part of the post out when relplacing the pic.

    Saw yer post before you edited it. How come I didn't know about mirror lock before?? That's perfect!

    Arg, I'm still figuring out functions of my camera now and then almost a year later. Lol.

    And thanks again. I'm very happy with the lens... I just hope that some day I'll make a bit of money back with it! Lol

    well when doing macro two big sources of vibration are you and mirror movement.

    Remove "you" by using cable shutter release, and remove mirror vibrtions with mirror lock

    Already using cable release, but will definitely start using the mirror up thing.
