Default First outing with 100WR

My first outing with the 100WR it was late evening and not much light. Look forward to learning more about this lens in the coming days.







Thanks for looking

Looks like a keeper, for sure! I like the bokeh in the first one, looks very smooth for a macro lens. The last picture is wonderful, but I think that reflects more on the photographer doing a great job of capturing a beautiful scene, rather than the lens, though. Well done!

Harriet, I believe most macro lenses have great bokeh, the Tamron 90, Sigma 105 and definitely your Vivitar Series 1 too ! We can now add the 100 WR to that list

You're going to love that lense Pastor ! Macro lenses in the 90-105 range are great as portrait or street lenses too.

Thanks everyone. I think it is a keeper. I'm enjoying it with my grandkids and in learning to do macro photography.
