Well as it turns out my wife got me the Vivitar 100mm 3.5 Macro lens I was looking at. Crafty woman I tell ya :mrgreen:. So I spent some time with it today, and I was actually really suprised at how well it did (though I am not sure yet if I am a fan of the 1:1 adapter, because you have to be pretty close for it to work). I think the problem I am having now is my aquarium lights. I don't think they are bright enough for macro work. Good thing I am getting higher output lights soon :cheer:. Anyway after about 2 hours of playing with it here are the 4 pictures that actually kind of turned out. I just though I would share my progress thus far. I really feel that my current problem is my lighting. When I have the camera on Macro or any other auto setting, the flash wants to pop up. So I think once my new higher intensity lights come into play, perhaps I can yeild some better results. Any comments or critiques are welcome, thanks for looking!
