    Sup Pro ... another great macro. Shizz. Never heard of Kiron. Me freakin noob in photography. Will google it. As for macro, recently I just bought Raynox 250. But I guess, yours definately better than mine. World still, its in manual focusing.

    Tought of buying LUMIX LX-3. Saw lots of nice macro photos.
    Any comments from the PRO here ?

    Thanks guys.

    The dust are moisture based, cant really blow them up with a bulb blower, any alternative cleaning technique ?, the weather here is very humid, hot and dusty, causing moisture and dust to get in easily.

    Well if you're going to insist on not taking Kiwi's advice above then you could do a lot worse than google "copper hill images"

    Wet cleaning the sensor may seem scary at first, but it's really not that big of a deal.

    Thanks n9nf.
    Kiron is not really a well known brand, they haven't made any glass since 1987. Kiron lenses were made by a company called Kino Precision in the eighties. Kino Precesion made lenses for many different companies, like Vivitar (some of the Series 1 lenses are made by Kino) and Panagor. They also sold some of their lenses under their own brand, Kiron.

    The brand used to have a very good reputation. The Kiron 105 f/2.8 is one of the best lenses they produced. It's supposed to be identical to the Vivitar 105 f/2.5, which explains why I can actually set my lens brighter than f/2.8

    It's manual focus, and it doesn't meter with my camera (so I have to set everything manually, including flash output by guessing) but the lens is very sharp and the bokeh is great.

    The raynox lens you bought is not a real macro lens, but just a small lens to put in front of another lens. It will work fine, but there are some compromises in image quality.

    NCF, amazing shot. The colours are awesome.
    Drifter, welcome to the forum. Very nice shot. If you took multiple shots in different exposures of the scene, you could try blending them for an even better exposure
    ANP, you could also try Sensor Swabs, it's also a wet sensor cleaning sollution.

    Here's another picture. Taken at f/2.8 or f/4 (I can't remember and the Exif only says f/0):
