HEY!!!!!!!!!!!!!! well, today finally I got my Canon 100 L, I need to thanks a lot of people around here for all the help deciding which lens I was going to get. I almost got the sigma 150 instead of this one, but after playing around with my 70-200 plus extension tubes and Magnifier filter (500D) without using IS and fixed in 150mm, I realized how difficult was to focus hand-holding, then I did the same at 100mm, and then at 100mm with IS, and I know I'm not going to use a tripod, then I got the canon!. I can tell you that the IS doesn't help with the final sharpness of a macro picture with flash, but makes the focus a lot easier. OK then, about my first day with my new "L toy": I play tennis a lot therefore I don't really like the wind, but since today I officially HATE IT!!. I was trying to take pictures of some flowers with a soft breeze, and it was almost impossible!!!!. Another thing surprised me, is that EVERY SINGLE THING becames interesting and a possible subject when we are talking about macro Photography!! OK, now some pictures!!. the first and the second pictures are crops because the spider was like 3mm long and the fly like 5mm. I would like to here some comments about them and please be as critical as you want to be, I really want to learn. and BTW, sorry, I couldn't find prettier "models"
