    Let me know what you all think of my photo, I took it today using a 40d and EF 100mm f2.8 macro.

    f6.3
    1/125
    Natural lighting a bit of light PP in CS3

    Sometimes it can be a tough crowd. Sometimes though I want to comment, but I think that I'm not qualified enough to comment. But then theres times when I just give my thoughts regardless. Hopefully it's appreciated.

    I think it's a rally cool shot. D.O.F. is spot on, but it definitely would have benefited from a tad more lighting.

    I actually tend to agree, seeing it now on my work monitor (edited on my laptop where it looked fine). Might give it a tweak when I get home and see how it compares.

    I bought it second hand for $500 NZD (to give an idea of how much that is in your currency, the newer 100mm USM version retails here for about $1100). I love the lens to be honest, check some of the pics in my flickr under the macro or flowers set, pretty much they were all taken with this lens.

    It is the non-USM version and the AF is pretty bad on it, very noisy and a bit slow for anything other than a still subject, but I basically only ever use it in MF mode anyway so it doesn't bother me. I haven't really used any other macro lenses to compare it with, but it takes great shots and thats all that counts right?
