    cut a piece of the picture out to show you the size of it as if it was 100% out of the camera... since the whole picture would be too big.

    400 is alot.... or I got a smoking deal on mine. I got my used Canon 100mm for 250 shipped. see my recent thread.

    The last guy to reply has a 135mm for sale that maybe you could snag for a good price.

    Seeing all these macro shots makes me want to pick one up, but then again, I'd probably end up using it once a month. Dunno if it it'd be worth it.

    The 90mm isn't just a macro lens... Does great portraits too:

    the cat is at 5.6....


    Who the fuck shoots macro shots with available light?

    Strobes = option to shoot at high f-stop.

    Yeah, I was looking at the 85 too. Love that lens!

    But I figured I wasn't giving up anything but 1 stop with the Tamron, plus I get macro...
