First P-D FA 100mm tests...
Posted By: Duh_Vinci, 03-18-2007, 06:34 AM

At last, the lens is here. I must admit, never owning a true 1:1 macro lens, takes a little getting use to...

Here are first few shots with it (all from DNG to Adobe Raw):

And last but not least:

I think I'm going to like this lens

Oh wow! My latest acquisitions set me back for a little while, and while I am wanting/saving up for a fast zoom, you put this up?!? Just keep feeding that LBA of mine. It worsens everyday!

Great shots!

From the first three shots I thought I was a bee and going to pollinate the flower.
Great crisp shots and detail.

How did you pick up the technique so fast? I got my DFA 100 on Friday - as I posted a bit earlier - handholding the thing is tough for my AA personality wiring! Thus, I've order a (I hope) good tripod.

We may both want tips from NaCLH2O who handles his macro like a pro.
