    accord2003 - well - I quite like this shot - normally it is quite hard to pick out the stars anyway.. you did really well here!
    Twism ~ that really is a great capture! - Love the colours too.
    Rooz - as mentioned in the bird thread - superb capture with these two shots!

    I am betwixt and between over it however.
    My Sigma 17 - 70 goes very close - problem is if it were a butterfly I was taking I would scare it away as it gets so very close to get a large magnification (@70mm) - i tried the Sigma 105 macro and that moves me and the camera a bit further away. My 70 - 300 is macro between 200 & 300mm - now I have the opposite problem - this is just to far away sometimes.
    I am concerned that the Tamron 90mm will need to get in very close - a bit like my 17 - 70
    How is it in your experience...?
    Geoff, I haven't really got opinions yet. I've never tried shooting macro before and have nothing but my 18-200 to compare it to. Much much shorter working length, much better magnification and 10,000% sharper. I bought on price, it was the cheapest macro lens on offer and Ssil tied up a deal that "I couldn't refuse".
    Here's a 100% crop of my son at about 1 m, manual focus in poor light, SOOC.

    Love it Accord, coun't me in for buying a copy if thats a sample of "desires".
    I eventually noticed there's a guy in the frame - love his expression.

    It's not a laughing matter Rooz, I was allready frustrated for sharpness at 200mm which I use 80% of the time. Now I'm frustrated throughout the range.

    I really hate shooting with primes though - I'm no good at it. Heck the results from primes look nice though.

    Amazing bird btw, the wallaby didn't co-operate with the composition imho (said the apprentice to the master).

    It's a foolhardy man who posts a similar shot to one of Rooz's just afterwards but here goes my captive rock wallaby.

    i'm hearin ya mate. the little bastard wouldnt move. best of a bad bunch.

    RE primes: you will grow to love them and get used to the flexibility limitation to the point where you even forget there IS a limitation. the performance is just so outstanding. you would need the 24-70/2.8 to match em.
