Sorry had my eyes poked on...had a Pre-Op due to up coming LASIK so I had blurred vision for the past 30 hours or so.

Well I got it yesterday and the lens is in stellar condition! Only a few facial nicks but no dings! The actual glass is clear and free of scratches

Still waiting on the mount as it is coming from China (darn ebay). Hopefully it will be here soon.

good start there ss. yep, for macro, close down the aperture & use a tripod. gotta have good light. try f8/f16. try flash.

Alrighty I finally have enough togther to make a decent posting. The Bokeh on this lens is insane! It really gives my pics some serious pop. It really gets in tight @ 1:1 but I have not played with 1:1 so much as its dificult without the tripod. Ok here you go
