This is an amazing lens. By all accounts, it should have a limited label. While it's not a pancake lens, it has amazingly small and tight construction with metal build. While it is a great macro lens, it can also be used for portraiture without problem (just may need to work a little harder to fix blemishes).

@Rondec,

a versatile lens for sure. Fantastic shots.:-) Did you use some sort of tele converter to get that close to the grasshopper?

@Creampuff,

A joy to view your shots!:-) I can't wait to get my lens into action. I guess, I need to postpone the macro shooting outdoors until Spring...

No. Just got really close to him -- probably about the minimum focus distance.

Only had it a couple of hours but here's a couple

My lens sounds very slightly gritty/scratchy when manually focussing...is this normal? I have tried to compare it to the rest of my lenses and they all make some slight sound when turning the focussing ring...

Anyways on with the pics
