This lens always seems to produce good images with excellent color rendition, especially reds. It's also pretty sharp. Notice the fine spider webs on the stamens?

What a beautiful deep red. And a great non-distracting b/g.

As reds can be problematic, this is a very nice rendering Dewey. If the snow ever finishes melting here maybe I should pull out my Tak bayonet and try some shots too!
