First real chance of a portrait with the FA135, shot wide open with a little tweaking (little -ve clarity)

a portrait with the FA135
What a hat!! She looks like she's off to the races somewhere - surely nothing else could justify such headgear! I like the background blur - enough to give you a sense of surroundings while not being distracting.

Flower pics are also lovely - and also very indicative of the DOF difference between those two stops. How close will it get? And what's the diffraction like at f/32? This might be one that's worth ditching my 100 Macro for.

Thanks, we were off to a Wedding.

I think it gets as close as 75cm, but it works well with the Raynox DCR-250 that i have.
