Hello all. New to the forum. I just got the 100mm f/2.8 Macro USM. The budget couldn't stretch to the L but I am loving this lens. Here are a couple as I tested out the lens. Taken with my trusty T1i. Any feedback is welcome.
Hello and welcome, Slyham.
I like your pictures, especially the dandelion 1 and 2.
I think, I'll have to try something similar next year
The Oxalis2 is the one I prefer from these two, because with the little bit bigger distance and the addition of background the composition is more appealing to me.
So, keep it up!
This particular shot is just fantastic...would you care to describe how you got this shot?
I don't recall all the settings but I think it was
5d3+24 - 105L @ 24mm
1/200th - iso 400 - f/5.6
2x 600rts at full power slightly behind them 45* and 12 ft high
Reflector lying on the ground with me with a cheapo smoke machine providing some drama. I took 12 frames before I got this one. Thanks for asking.
Hey everybodyMine too, tight like my 24-105. I was expecting it to be more like my 70-200 II or 16-35 II. Maybe has something to do the with the design of external zooming to maintain weather seal.
Got my 24-70 mk II yesterday, no clicking at all.
From Canon Europe though
Zoom ring is a bit tighter than I imagined it would be though
Tawny Frogmouth with baby. A week ago, I found the body of one chick, on the ground, beneath this nest. Fortunately, they had a second one to show off

Nice! Monopod isn't enough?
monopods can get in the way
I know for sports, I much prefer to hand hold my 300 2.8, easier to track, especially for football and if going up and down sidelines too.
Anyone see that video of the photog butting heads with an aggressive male elk for 7 minutes in Oct 2013 in the Smokey Mountains Park? I was worried about him, but it turns out OK. Scarey
Here is a link to the video.
first L glass purchase! just ordered this from b&h.
Canon used to be the undisputed leader of designing novel AF lenses. This is the company that gave us the TS-E 17/4L, 50/1.0L, 85/1.2L, MP-E 65/2.8, 135/2L, 200/1.8L, and 400/4L DO IS, among other amazing technologies. But all we see these days are uninspiring, conservative, incremental designs. Nothing that pushes the envelope, nothing that makes us feel like we just *have* to try this lens because it will let us get the shot that no other lens can.
10 images, focus stacked.
