Very nice colors and saturation and detail! Are these out of the camera or did you do any post processing?

You make a good case for this lens - I love the pictures. My favorite is the flower, though your butterfly pictures are also outstanding. I'm considering something along this line and everything I've seen sure makes it look very nice.

Thanks everyone -- I hope to try it out this weekend on some longer shots. It is a very light lens and an easy lens use as a walk around lens.

Very nice David! Love the Tiger Swallow Butterfly. I'm finding this lens to be quite good. Good range, and the price wasn't excessive. Which body are you using?...cheers...Don
