Here are a few macro shots with my newest craigslist lens (a few more on my flickr page, link at bottom). The first one is 1:1 and straight from the camera, only converted from raw, no post processing. The rest I tweaked a little in GIMP. Thanks for looking

Wow, terribly detailed.
Any more negative adjectives we can use to describe this lens?

Yeah, this lens is horrible Actually I am quite pleased with it. I was surprised at how smooth the out of focus background was on the pencil shots.

Thanks for the kind replies
