    These shots are amazing. How much is natural lens bokeh, and how much is PP? The bottom right foreground in both shots give them kind of an artificial quality.

    Regardless, these images are awesome. I'm a sucker for images that capture the miniature detail of our surroundings.

    Images are natural lens bokeh...
    PP: WB, Contrast, Saturation and things like that...:smile:

    In the first image I like the way the purple appears against a muted background, with it's complimentary colour yellow peeking out. Good composition and balance with an interesting subject.

    The second one I like the way the light catches and hilights the details.

    The lens looks good - have you used it for telephoto yet?

    Would be amazing on a 20" metallic print.

    I bought it only for macro shots...But it seems to me, that this lens shines only at macro-working distances. If the subject is far away it seems to me that see lens isnt that good (not so sharp).
    I can recommend it for serious macro work (only with tripod and release cable & Antishock) because of its sharpness (wide-open), no problems so far with CAs and the bokeh seems to me very pleasing.
