I picked up brand new in box Minolta 100mm f/2.8 macro, it was a deal I simply couldn't pass up (think almost stole it). The guys at my local shop are great and the have just found a loyal customer.:hail: First shot, I still need work with macro technique and a better flash. Orchid Side note: The colors in the picture taken from my flickr are no where near as vibrant as the files save on my computer. This is the second time I've noticed this happening, anybody else have that problem?
