Thanks dawg, lol. The other thing I would like to find onebay would definately have to be a dedicated macro lens. Let me know if you come across another deal (that you aren't going to take)like that $2 one, was it a K-mount lens?

Yep...K-mount Gemini Brand auto focus macro with two filters, a polorizer and a sky 1-A and both lens caps with a leather case!!! ...The seller didn't even know the difference between a K-mount and a screw mount. Also they only lived 30 miles from my house so I didn't have to pay much on the shipping! Luck!! It looks good , just has some dust on the outside!

That's amazing dawg... better be lucky I didn't see it. I have been keeping an eye out for a decent length macro lens. I'd like to get ahold of a 135mm dedicated macro, but who knows what tomorrow brings on ebay?

the 105mm range is what you'll usually find Nick. Do a search for one on e-bay. Might be surprised what shows up. Don't remember many 135mm Macros around when I was heavy into the SLR world. But the 105mm's were everywhere! Don't turn your nose up at the screw mounts either...sometimes they are the best glass out there! The Vivitar series ones are great ones too. They as well as the screw mounts are all metal tubes and to me better lenses. This passion for lighter also means more easily damaged and cheaper( don't mean that in a good way either.)

Yeah. 105 would work too, just something with decent length and dedicated to Macro's. I love shooting Macros and don't really have a lens that works great for it yet. Would love to be able to shoot some of the bugs and flowers like the onesI have seen on here.

We have one Fred...It's called DP Review and it has a sign out that says No Greenhuts Allowed..Trolls may enter at their leisure! LOL Sorry Fred...But it is so slow on this forum right now that Nick and I can talk for days and no one will hear...Except for the Fred Faction...Now come on do you have an opinion on these lenses or not?? You've joined tyhe conversation so add something to it. I know you have enough experience to help out a couple of Newbies like Nick and I!!

Yeah... but all a bit out of my price range for now... I think if I will be able to talk my wife into anything else for a while, it will have to be pretty cheap

A couple of star fields from tonight for the Dawg. Both only resized, straight from the camera. I cut the exif to keep the size down, there was not much in it besides ISO and shutter speed due to the manual lens being used.

50mm
Av 1.9
Tv 15"
ISO 800
