SMC D FA 100mm 2.8 Macro WR

I shot some video the other day that I think really shows this lens strengths. The video is embedded on my blog but should be seen in HD by clicking through to Vimeo. Thanks for having a look and comments are certainly welcome as I would enjoy discussing it.

Very nice stuff. You're right about the benefits of this lens for video, and you show it off very well.

I especially liked the ladybug shots. Seeing it in macro gave me a different perspective on it, like a person trying to climb a building that's being tossed around by the wind.

Woah, need some coffee...

I would have tried for more shots like that but I had an appointment and had very limited time. Besides some of the squalls were pretty heavy so I didn't want the camera or me to get any wetter.

Yes but I really was focused on Video that day so I only took a few grabs

Here is one (It's also 1600 ISO for the pixel peepers) f7.1 1/500 and 100mm of course.
