WHAT???

No Canon 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 USM wideangle-zoom in your photo-bag? Or better still, a Tokina 9-11mm f/2,8 ?

Come one, Markus. You will need one for your NYC-trip in August, to get that big city onto your 450D's sensor!

...and I hear the Canon EF 85mm f/1.8 USM is a very nice portrait-lens with wonderful shallow bokhey , and..... .....

Maggo,

Spend the extra money and go with the ef 50mm 1.4 USM. It really is allot better lens. I was not convince till I finally pull the trigger on it and got the lens. My destruction thread were all taken with the 50mm 1.4. The 1.8 would not have focus fast enough to capture some of those shots.

Markus,

Yes, indeed, they are very likeable. Number three, to me , has the most appealing composition

Hi again, Markus,

Walter - if you send me the money for a decent wideangle lens I could add one to my collection... and shoturtle, maybe you'd like to spent the 350 on the 50/1.4.... would that be OK for you guys?

No, just kidding... these lenses would be amazing to have, but of course I'm on a budget

Hey Torgny, thank you for your kind comments - glad you like them! And thanks a lot for your cropping suggestion for #7 - I really like the way it looks in portrait format!

A few days ago my wife planted some nice dahlias in our garden - a red and a yellow one. So I decided to catch my cam and take a shot...

This little fellow took a bath in the sun at the same meadow I shot the dandelion I've posted recently... all done with the 55-250.

C&C welcome!

Markus, these are all so nice I can't single one out, but as a group, I love the bugs. They seem to pay us little mind as they go about their business and we ours. That lens, in your hands has rendered some fine works of art. Keep it up!

#1 I really like,

the rest of them blew me away! I didn't think you could get that kind of detail on a macro zoom. Great job. Maggo, keep it up.
these two made me say OMG! too pin sharp and stunning
