Thanks GW, Jim, and Rodney. Much appreciated. I think the rose is my favorite, too. GW, number 3 is an enlargement from No 2, which itself is a crop. The lens seems capable of resolving considerable detail.

I love the primrose - never knew that's what it was. It's such a delicate looking flower.

Thanks Harriet, Patty, and Don for the nice comments. I agree, Don - I am quite pleased with it. The other lenses I have been using aren't bad, but I do see a difference.

Very nice Penolta. The Columbine would be my favorite, I have seen this flower before and wondered what it was, now I know.

Thanks, Tim, Columbines are very delicate flowers, but they spread out so far that the DOF is rarely adequate to get them completely sharp in a closer shot,

I have to say I was awfully surprised to see the Butterfly Bush and the Autumn Sage in shots 1 and 2. You see, we have the same two (and not that common of) plants growing right next to each other in our front yard. I thought you were maybe visiting us! :-)

Nice shots.

BTW, we also have the Blue Salvia in our backyard.......

Thanks, Jon. My wife says that she and your wife must shop at the same nurseries! Our plantings are designed to encourage butterflies and hummingbirds, as yours must be, too.

I agree...But with one change...You already love this lens. All very well done.
