Default My latest acquisition

At a price too good to pass up, I got it mainly as a macro lens. http://tinyw.in/chUB

Good Luck with it, I love macro photography and have had the 35 and now the 50...I sold the 35.

I have found the 50 works wonderfully with both the EC14 and the EC20! Keeps me from having to bend over so far or get on my hands and knees for a shot!

I have heard good things about this lens, I am anxious to see some pics...
