    Was not really planning on buying this anytime soon, but saw it on Craigslist for $200 and snatched it up.. it's in perfect condition..

    I just got home, so am only shooting shit around the house, but hey at least they aren't cat pictures..

    I've only spent about 30 minutes with it, but I must say - so far this lens is pretty fucking sweet. Especially for the price :bowdown:

    sharp as a tack!

    I love this lens! Haven't used it since I got my 80-200 2.8 though... Might need to start shooting with it again....

    I really enjoy looking at macro pics. It is really not my thing to take though. besides that candle shot, I have no fuckin clue what I am looking at, but it looks great
