I read some reviews and the only thing stopping me is 1:2. If I sell a guitar....maybe.
Yeah even it's 1:2 but I think it's worth it

I really wish they had called it "close-focus" instead of Makro, just to eliminate that criticism. I don't do any microscopic-level shots so it's never bothered me. In fact, this is unusually macro for me. Got this by laying on my side in my backyard. I don't think I really nailed the focus because of the weird position I was in. Not much background contrast to show off the bokeh in this shot, though you can sort of see the smoothness of it. I have no idea if this is at the minimum focus distance or not. f/8 Second one is obviously not macro at all, but I just took it the other day at f/2.2 and it has a bit of bokeh to it.
I like the out of focus on your pic 2 so much! It is just amazing, so smooth and comfortable to see!

I also took this shot in Boston Common last few months

Per forum rules - if it's for sale, you must post a price.

Bokeh/OOF is important, but look at the subject! Rarely do I see the beauty, softness, and delicateness of a flower captured so well! I'm sure if I could reach out and touch the petals they'd feel just like they look!

Gosh, on behalf of the annoyingly addictive ZK lenses, thanks! It would have helped if I had framed that shot a little better and not cut off the second one back. Though I must say that the original JPEG (developed from a RAW), even at the same res. looks much better than it does posted here.

I'm not so sure you even did frame it wrong. At least it didn't cross my mind. And the fact that another photographer doesn't even think to criticize the shot (even just to himself) really says something positive. If good equipment selection was part of it (and I'm sure it was), so be it. But you're still responsible for that, and you're the one who did it right - from beginning to end.
