I almost commented on this last night but thought PF might be a bit too highbrow

Guess not

So last evening I went to the PF Marketplace and found a Panagor PMC Auto 90mm f2.8 Macro being offered by CheekyGeek. It seemed like a good way to learn about macro photography without spending $500 or $600 for a new lens.

I made an offer and this morning I used PayPal to pay him and by now it's in the mail to me............I'll post my first shots with it late next week.

Thanks for all the good advice, especially how to shoot those pesky incests....

That is not my quote, it's the quote I was quoting. You need a quote within a quote to show that correctly.

Seems like you want an all-rounder type macro lens. The best is probably the DA 35mm f2.8 Macro. Very versatile and well rounded. As long as you're not taking macro shots of incests (since the min focal distance is so short, you might scare them off), this lens would be wonderful. Beautiful lens for flowers btw.

otherwise, if you want a pure macro lens, the DFA 100mm f2.8 WR is stellar.

You mean like this? Taken on a step ladder and eaves of a house.



DA 35mm LTD


Same nest but with the Sigma 105mm EX DG macro and Sigma EG140 ring flash (which is risky)

All them nasty little incests. Ick... (I was once swarmed by hornets that covered my head and stung me to the brain. I was addled by venom for weeks.) For these guys, I'd put my Wollensak 162mm on bellows, stand back a bit further. Ick...

Rico, are you serious when you said that you got your head was stung? I got stung by these boogers once, atleast one but that single yellow jacket got me behind my neck. I'm not sure if that is how someone gets stung but I felt like someone punch me with a syringe with a blunt force and felt a sore stingy feel. it caused me a painful headache. I just hope it didn't hit a nerve.

I appeared to wear a blonde wig. Except for spending a night in The Tombs (old NYC City Prison) it was the absolute worst experience of my life.
