Those are some nice images :-) I thought that the PP in the first set was very nice, and brought up the contrast and colours nicely. For me, the second set might have been a tad over saturated, but the original images give you lots to work with.

Time to bring up this thread !
Hey, I just noticed this thread! I also acquired this mythical macro lens this winter from a forum member (vonBaloney). I started shooting with it this spring, and I have to say I enjoy the slight increase in working distance from my Tamron 90mm (272E). It's a heavy beast though! Been thinking of doing a comparative test with my other 1:1 setups, but for now here are some shots (all previously posted in various other threads)...

Vivitar 100mm f/2.8 Macro

Time to revive another dead thread

This is the pre Series 1 version as I understand it.
It's going to take some practice for me to get used to this lens, but I think I'm going to enjoy it.

Good idea! I love my Series 1 105mm! If it wasn't such a tank, it would see a bit more use. Still, some of my all-time favorite shots were taken with that lens.

Here are a few more of my Series 1 images, likely reposted from other threads, but never posted here.

They are heavy!

Nice pictures!
