First attempt at Focus stacking... Shot 9 shots wide open and cloned in the sharp parts for the 9 shots... I am sure there's a better way to do it for free..

If money wasnt a concern Id probably grab the 180 but..

Anybody have any thoughts on the Sigma 150 F2.8 Macro, Ive seen going for around $450-500 these days. I owned the Canon 100 USM Macro non L for about a year and sold it to fund the purchase of my 100-400 cause I didnt do a whole lot of macro at the time but it was a great lens.

Kind of have the itch to get back into it with spring here and summer in the next few months and debating on going with the IS version or saving a few bucks for the Sigma and getting the bonus reach

Nice. A Macro lens is definitely next on my buy list.

It was a warm (70F) and nearly windless day yesterday here in Florida, so I broke out my 180L and found one of my favorite subjects (Spring snowflake flowers) in bloom:

Thanks for the nice comment, and I am always amazed by the "pop" this lens gives photos as well.  Post is a snap and I love having the ability to use extenders.

For those concerned about IQ, also consider the Zeiss 100 mm MP. Quite a bit better quality than the Canon 180M, particularly no lateral color. Focussing the Zeiss is faster than the 180M in AF. Price is about the same.
I have the 180M, but only use it as lens of last resort. With a TC 1.4x it gives you a 252 mm lens, and that is usually sufficient to be safe for venomous snakes. Has anybody compared that set-up vs. 300/2.8 with extension rings? One of those things on my to-do list.
