Just wanted to throw in a few close up macro shots taken with this lens as well.

An example of the extremely shallow DoF - this fly was less than a centimeter in length.
Image
Shutter Speed: 1/60 second
F Number: F/2.8
ISO Speed: 100
Vignetting and cropping in LR2.
Original 3888x2592 - cropped 2592x2592

Image
Shutter Speed: 1/60 second
F Number: F/6.3
ISO Speed: 100
EV +1.33 and cropping in LR2
Original 3888x2592 - cropped 2000x2000

And a not so macro one:

Image
Shutter Speed: 1/6 second
F Number: F/2.8
ISO Speed: 100
Selective desaturation done in LR2
No cropping.

All of the photo's were just great - I have this lens under the Christmas tree - wife said I have to wait - so it will be totally new to me - but my question to you folks that have it - what mode do you use the lens in - (instructions suggest AV mode) or are you changing from AV to TV to manual - using different modes for that certain photo? I am totally confused at what setting this lens should be used at - ISO/exposure/ect. - or is it just a learning experience? Note to myself - as I have been learning more about the concept of hyperfocal distance - I find this (and any lens) more easy to use - obtaining better contrast and shaprness with the photographs that I have been taking. AV is the way to go - you just have to understand the distance factor of where you set your focus points and the relation of that point - forward of and back of - for the shaprness of your photographs.

Shooting Mode Macro( Close Up )
Tv( Shutter Speed ) 1/60
