Gave this a go on a recent trip, and although it's hard for me to appreciate the difference in sharpness it makes, I'm certainly impressed by the detail the images render using the technology.

All of that is well appreciated. And I couldnít tell you if the Tamron combination outresolves the 36Mp sensor. But I do know that the results are very sharp at 100% with the TC. I have no intention of using the TC on my Sigma 400/5.6, as intriguing as that may seem (Iím not even joking to think that my 500mm f/8 mirror lens would outresolve it).

Dancing brolgas

This rare sight is the mating dance of brolga birds that occurs on the swamp flats of this hot area of the Kimberleys of northwest Australia. Their delightful interactions are swift and difficult to capture as their behaviour changes when they notice any other life form in their line of sight.

Okay fellas. It was always going to be a heated topic, but can we leave the more personal remarks out of the discussion.
Just stick to information/facts rather than inciting people with inflammatory statements towards individuals.

There is a lens club for all the lens classifications and brands, there's even the Raynox macro club, but none yet dedicated to *dedicated* macro lenses.

So let's see what your classic macro lenses can do. Bring out your Voightlander 125mm macros, your FA* 200 macros, your Lester-Dine macros and your Sigma 180mm macros and show the forum their capabilities.

Starting off, here's some samples from the trusty FA 100 f/2.8 macro:

What is your favorite aperture for each of the 3 amigos?

The mythical term given to the unique effect these lenses produce.
It's the combination of 3D effect, bokeh and colour contrast that makes the images 'pop'.
All quite subjective, but most people agree that there is something special about the 3 amigos' results.
Almost magical.
