    Just to be upfront...all of my macros are full frame. Sometimes very slight cropping for composition, but that's it ;)

    Thanks!
    Yep...takes lots...and lots...and lots of patience :D

    It depends on what I'm shooting. For flowers and general stuff, I use the Sigma 105mm. For bugs, I always use the Sigma 150mm f/2.8.

    The extra working distance of the 150mm for bugs is great. But, I find it a bit awkward for shooting flowers. I have used both lenses for flowers and bugs though. Either one works equally well. The Sigma's are equally as sharp as the Canon 100mm. What I like most about the 150mm is that it has internal focusing.

    Unbelievably sharp shots there Woodsac!! The colours and compo in #2 make it my fave, but the detail in all of them (right down to the little hairs on its legs, and the 'grid' pattern of its eyes) is just awesome.
