I recently took this photo with my 6D Mark ii using a 45 year old Takumar 85mm f/1.8 Vintage Lens....

I love shooting with old lenses, they just have a unique character to them many modern lenses lack ;)

Here's a Dwarf Crested Iris I shot a couple days ago right off my back porch with my 6D2 using my Tamron SP 45mm f/1.8 Lens....(Quite an amazing lens to say the least!)

My new 100-400mm L II lens came Thursday afternoon, and I had time to make a few quick shots to confirm that it was working. From my deck I shot the few remaining dogwood blossoms in the woods behind my house. This is a 100% crop. I set the aperture to f/16 and had everything else work automatically. The IS does an amazing job in allowing handheld shots at 400mm. As I recall, the camera chose 1/400 for the shutter speed and set the ISO to compensate. Since the forum software shows the picture enlarged, the background looks a little noisier here than it does normally. So if you wish to pixel peep, extract the JPEG from this page and view at 100%.

I also noticed amazing macro flowers with stopped down to f/16. I am unnecessarily trying to keep it stopped down to f/8  max based on diffraction comments in reviews and struggling to get proper dof.

I completely understand the DOF dilemma!  I strive to have the entire blossom sharp.  This one was taken with a 5D IV + 35mm Art.  I tend to photo trilliums with my 80D + 35mm Art.  I hope to photo sundews soon and I'll use my 80D with a 100mm Milvus - or maybe the new Sigma 70mm Art, if it becomes available.

Great photo chrysoberyl! I love everything I see there!

The image below is at ISO 400, f.5.6, 400mm (crop camera, effective 600mm).
It is 100% crop from the RAW file, "translated" to JEPG in DxO PL without any corrections. Tripod!

Lovely shot, ISv.

Thanks Click! That was just the cropped RAW file. Here is the photo (just little adjustments, mostly the noise reduction). I afraid with that background/circumstances I couldn't put all of the object in focus and isolate it from the background in the same time. Well, focus stacking (huh - in the nature, with the wind and changing light conditions, I would like to see it...)
