Fountain, small part cropped out on the right.
I'm hoping Canon replaces their 180mm L Macro with a lighter (and-hopefully-not-more-expensive) 150mm f/2.8 IS Macro... and their 135mm f/2 with a 100mm f/1.4. That would make my year (of the lens).
It is correct that the field of view changes, however the size of an object at the point of focus will be the same at 1:1. It is objects in the background that change. Brian over at The Digital Picture has an exellent example of this in his macro lens review: http://www.the-digital-picture.com/Canon-Lenses/Canon-Macro-Lens.aspx
Scroll down and look at the photos of the purple flower. They are taken at different focal lengths with the same magnification. As you can see the size of the flower is the same, however the background is quite different due to the narrow field of view of the longer focal length lenses.
Sony just release what appears to be an awesome camera, especially for the price. I am committed to Canon myself, but I think some people are starting to think about switching because these others like Sony are upping the quality of their products.
Canon doesn't have anything close to the 24mp, 79 AF points and 12 FPS...especially under $1500.
Curious to see what everyone else's thoughts are on this new Sony and where you think Canon falls within the competition.
This morning I took this photo with the 100mm L.
Iso 160 - f/13 - 0,5 sec.
Distance about 30 centimetres.
I used a tripod and cable release.
I didn't crop the photo and shot it in raw. Yes, the colour is about that green, that's why I like it.
How is it possible to get everything sharp with this lens even in the corners?
This morning I've tried this one. I focussed on the drop, but the top of the flower isn't sharp at all. What's wrong now.
Iso 500 - f/6.3 - 1/30
