I picked this up on the recommendation of woodrim (thanks, Mike!) although I got the MD version, not the AF. At $32, postage included, I find it to be very good value. I finally got a chance to give it a workout. It is still winter here and very dry and, with the exception of the sky, fairly monochromatic. Hence "fifty shades of brown." Wink

My only minor criticism is that I need to be careful about sun angle, as it has a tendency to flare under certain conditions. Next time I will try it out with a hood.











And these were with the macro setting, wide open:





Thank you for looking!

Looks good, Judy. The thistle thing picture seems sharp. I do know that it has the same number of elements and groups as the AF model, but can't recall seeing a diagram. I'd be curious to compare an AF image with the MD image. Maybe we can do that.
