"Anything that can get tangled around anything else will."

Just got my DA 35mm ltd today, was playing around with the macro function, and I'm pretty impressed. Despite me having to modify my macro lighting due to the non-existent distance of the subject from the camera, it's very fun to use.

and an un-pp'd 100% crop:

I have to shoot some images for the local casino this weekend for the football finals celebration and I'll definitely be seeing how this does
