I'm a very lucky guy, I found a guy who lives nearby who has an alpha 200 and lot's of cool stuff to go with it.

He loaned me his Sony 100 macro, Tamron 180 macro, Kenko extension tube set and some Canon close up lenses.

Today I used this setup. The Tamron and flash.

Here's a few of what I got with this setup.

This is the first time I've used a true 1:1 macro. They really takes some getting used to. The DOF is very verynarrow. Steady hands or a tripod, and lots of patients is required.

But lots of fun.

Agreed 100%!

But , if you have someone willing to loan it to you it sure is fun to try it out.

Heck, I could'nt afford this stuff. I'm married.

Bernabeu is obviously corrert, His posted shot is very nice, howsome ever, when conditions are less that optimal, that 3 mp p&s may not have even focused.

With the proper equipment, you can go and take your pictures and usually get the results you are looking for.

I don't have the flashes, and the macro lenses but I have never looked back after getting the DSLR. My poor old Kodak P712 has collected some dust.
