50mm lens reversed on front of a Sigma 105
Lens: Sigma 105macro / 50mm1.7 Camera: Pentax K10D Photo Location: Umatilla, Oregon ISO: 100

I left some of the EXIF data blank intentionally as these are all different settings. I have adapted a 50mm 1.7 M lens to the front of a Sigma 105 macro.

Wonderful shots! The first is great, but I also like the detail in the center of the third, a lot.

I'm starting to get conflicted on whether to buy the Sigma 105 or the Sigma 70, after seeing more of what people can do with the 105mm.

That 105 probably gets more use than any other lens I own. Sometimes it is just a bit much though, especially with a 1.5 X crop factor.

Wonderful captures Douglas. The light in the first and the detail in all three are amazing.

Fantastic - and each image in its own way. Although the second one did make me think of Little Shop of Horrors - Feed me Seymour, I'm hungry.
