    Here are a couple quick shots I got with my new lense...Canon 100mm macro.

    1) Fly

    1/200, f11, EX430 Flash with paper towel over

    2) Dead cricket

    1/200, f13, 12mm extension tube, EX430 Flash with paper towel over

    Let me know what you think!!

    I'm pretty happy with the lense, not with my skills.

    Cheers

    looks like you are getting the focus right - macro is certainly difficult to pull off well - but I think you are off to a great start!

    Great Start
    Unbelievable the amount of detail missed by the human eye
    I look forward to seeing more!

    Hi!

    Nice shots! And great lens! :)

    Which extension tube do you use? I might want to buy one as well for my 400D and 100mm lens...

    Awesome shots, especially the 1st one. I have the same lens and I love it.

    Did you notice those black dots in the 2nd pic? Might be some dust on your sensor perhaps?

    mdw: I used a 12mm Kenko tube on the cricket. I have the full set so hopefully I will have time to get really close to a fly soon!!

    niforpix: I did notice the spots :er: I guess it is time to try my hand at sensor cleaning :confused:

    Cheers
