What camera settings are you using with the flash? I haven't had much of a chance to play around with the flash in macro yet, but I'd use manual settings at f8 or smaller, and as fast a shutter speed as I could get away with. Remember, you can manually adjust the flash for over or under exposure if necessary.

I agree that it doesn't look grainy, just not good dof.

One trick I use pretty often is to put the lens in Manual focus, then move myself(the camera) back and forth until the front and back of the subject are equal in sharpness. I find it hard to use auto focus to do this.

Hope this helps.

Thanks Kita, I did do the moving back and forth but probably didn't watch for the equal sharpness.......:angry:

One more point about using a flash. Some type of diffuser will help prevent hot spots - even several layers of tissue will help.

I have an omni bounce for my external flash that I was using........hopefully the more I use the lens the better the photos will start to be. I appreciate all of the input...and if there is more, please post it. :?

even it has grain on it I like it.Only the complaint would be, Take the fresh flower not the bent petal flower. Otherwise it is a great shot :|:|
