Thanks for comments guys, and the info on ballhead snostorm,
For a lot of the same reasons, I've found myself using my Bigma as an occasional macro lens, but I'm not sure I've gotten the sharpness you've achieved with this set. This is a really nice set.

Never would have thought of this lens as a macro, nor of using it handheld. Very impressive results!
