I can't forget this lens, great one really as we can see on your samples! Bokeh just awesome in my opinion.

thanx Atilla...just one thing with this lens, focusing ring is too easy to move, i don't know if it's my copy or this lens in general. would love if it was a little stiffer

I guess just your copy I don't remember for any inconvenience.

Nice samples. Does it do true macro? What is the working distance?

it goes 1:2 , minimum focusing distance is 71cm, aperture goes from f4 to f32

Some very nice colorful samples with this lens, my fav is the last one from the second serie, perfectly catched Shocked ....I just found the background/bokeh a little bit too busy for my taste especialy for macro works!

all of these were taken at Floraart floral show, so there were fields of those flowers and that's why some of them have busy backgrounds

The last one (hummingbird moth?) fantastic. I love this lens, but 1:2 can be limiting. My focus ring is fine, so your lens may need some TLC

i took several shots of that moth, it never lands on the flower just sucks pollen in mid air

Just got this one ! I'm very pleased ; The focus ring is a little too loose like yours (it's often the case with IF lenses) ; Now I'm expecting a sunbeam, and i'll compare it with the Tamron 52A (not IF !, slightly lighter)
