Sharp, clear, good color. Is this made with an older, manual focus 105mm Vivitar? Or was this made with the roughly 2000-era Vivitar?

Thanks! I was trying to figure out how sharp it could get seeing as I was doing it free hand, and no this was a poss early 70 to late 70s Vivtar Series 1 lens.

The only thing I'd say here is try to get the eye in focus. Had that been focussed and as sharp as the body it would have made this shot even better.

That's really the way to go when dealing with such close working distances, move the camera in and out. At slightly greater distances then MF can be used and I never use AF (my two main Macro lenses the Venus 60 and Canon MP-E 65 are both manual anyhow). That said, when I'm doing insects in the wild I tend not to use a tripod or monopod, I just find them a hindrance and restrictive when it comes to trying to get the best angles in bushes and shrubs etc so I go hand held. Loads of non keeper shots right enough but I find it a far better method for getting those that are keepers.
