Shots look great, the bug isn't the sharpest, but given the conditions... it's still a good shot. This is one of the next items on my wish-list, along with the K10D.

#1 - my favorite. #2 - not boring, a really good use of limited DOF and really captured her feathers. #3 - kids are always adorable, a nice cute capture. #4 - while the least technically correct of your pictures, the fact that you got the picture at all is amazing.

Looks like you'll have a great time with this lens.

You are doing well with that lens, I like the photo of your son the best. I am glad you like the lens.

when i had this lens i found it very difficult to shoot 1:2 macros. there's a lot of room between the subject and the cam. it'll take practise to get good with it at a macro scale.

Yeah I am going to keep a cheap tripod in the back of the car, as it is a lot of room for such a narrow field of view.

Thanks all, I know they aren't great shots, just wanted to show off some photo's in various cenario's. For £109 it's brilliant, but darn is it long at 300mm in macro mode! :shock:
