This is definitely the sharpest lens that I own. It's fantastic.





I really should get it out more.

The Detail in that last image is to die for.

Thanks for the comments. I wish I could say it was my great technique that produced that image, but I really don't know why it came out like that! I wish I could reproduce that result!

I think it's just a matter of light... not saying that the photographer doesn't count Wink

I have this lens and it is one of my favorite to use.
Very sharp and excellent contrast and colors. To be perfect it needed go to 1:1 of magnification.

Here are a couple of abstract/texture shots with it:

I took the 55mm out snowshoeing in very flat light on Sunday and exposed for the people. I found the effect interesting -- very little detail in the snow.

These are wonderful lenses. It amazes me that many people think micro or macro lenses are only good for close up images. While they are designed to take such photos, you can also get superb results when using them as normal lenses, as this thread shows.

I love my 55mm Micro! The sharpness of this lens never disappoints. This is a Spiny Murex shell from the island Saipan (where I was born, about 50 miles south of Guam) in a light tent, this time illuminated only from above. The shell appears large in the image but is in all actually less than 5" long. It is very rare to find a Murex in this pristine a condition, it is a treasured item! The shell was placed on a piece of glass to add the reflection

Last weekend i received my 55/2.8 micro ais and tested it on my kids. There is also one in the Bokeh thread.




Amazing lens. Im gonna test the macro too and looking for the PK-13 extension tube for 1:1 macro. Im waiting for the f/3.5 version too.
