On and off, I've wanted a macro lens for about twenty years, and this morning mine finally arrived, and in between doing a million and one other things today I managed to take a few shots. What I hadn't realised was just how difficult it is to compose a shot with the shallow DoF at maximum magnification – it really can't be more than a couple of millimetres at f/2.8, ... if that. Anyway, this shot isn't quite what I was after – that will have to wait for another day – but it was the best I could come up with while hand-holding the lens and trying to photograph our fidgety three year old ;-)
More small things to follow ...
