    Only taken with my 28-80, so not macro technically, but I think I still like it. Tell me what you think.

    Stop it down half a stop it'd be perfect.

    I dont have any lower stop on my 28-80. I think it was at f/5.6. Not sure though. Ill check later.

    Other way dude, I am suggesting half way between 5.6 and 8 on the aperture ring ( and the 28-80 3.3-5.6 is in your sig BTW)

    I had the lens at 80mm, so 5.6 is the largest.

    Yeah, half a stop smaller, half way between 5.6 and 8. Even the sharpest lenses in the world are at their softest wide open, Stopping them down will bring out some detail making the image sharper over all, half a stop will do so as well but without loosing bokeh originally sought.

    5.6 is the largest aperture (smallest number) available at that focal length. You want to use a smaller aperture (larger number) to get more depth of field.

    Looks out of focus ... or maybe you used a long exposure time.
