GReat pictures, and I'm a bit jealous of the lens.
Read that it outperforms the best of canon nikon in the 200mm macro range, and you surely prove that.

[QUOTE=Marc Langille;981019]Hi GW,

Thanks for the very kind comments - glad you enjoyed them! Here's the culprit:

Aw well, that explains it! Just one more lens I can dream about never owning...
Why can't I just have a low cost hobby and be happy with it?

marc,
the 200 macro is a legend BUT i don't think it's IQ is any better than the 105/2.5 many of us have here..

Marc - impressive work as always! Great attention to every detail, and wonderful results!
I used to think I had a steady hand, until I tried getting shots of bee flies with my new Sigma 105 macro!
Your climate must be similar to ours - our spiderworts are blooming here too.

Outstanding pictures. I am taking pics of saltwater reef tanks and hope to eventually get close to the quality you do.

it's a very hard lens to find at any cost..
