I actually am not to big on macro. I do some but not like the wifey. That was why I never upgraded my ef 50mm 2.5 macro until this year. She never liked using the eos 1 because it is pretty heavy. But since we got the t1i, she is using it more. So it was time for a better macro lens. I will be using it as a prime more then as a macro.

The first pic you showed Shoturtle, how big is that item?
Is there any pix you've taken that has another item included for scale?

I just saw this thread now. Interesting read!

Shoturtle, congratulations on the purchase - and I expect your wife will be very happy with her nice birthday present!

Macro has become something I've enjoyed photographing lately. I bought the same lens last year.

Like you, I also find it great when a lens can have a 'dual purpose'. I have the 50mm f/1.8, but I am not too much of a fan of this lens (AF is still not 100% accurate, even after MF and on my 7D).

I actually now prefer to use my Canon 100mm f/2.8 lens for outdoor portraits than the 50mm f/1.8.

Here is a set of recent photos of my nieces using the Canon 100mm f/2.8 I'd appreciate any comments (none so far!)

Hopefully we can see some shots taken by your wife too!

Regards

Paul

Here is a dime next to to coin for scale, and a 1:1 of the coin with the ef 100 2.8 on a tripod. At F8

Here is the same watch with much better lighting. F8 at 100iso, long exposure on a tripod.
