Imagine a picture of a little wildflower filling one side of the frame with a field and stream in the midground and the distant mountains in the background...and all of it in sharp focus except for the grass right underneath the flower with dreamy bokeh.
That sounds like you're speaking from experience. I'd love to see it. It might put me over the fence on buying one.
I'm writing from anticipation as much as anything else. I haven't shot wildflowers since getting the version II, though I've played around with perspective and the like with an eye towards what I'll do in the spring.
Here're two sorta-samples, though. The poppies are with the version I from some years back. The other was messing around in the back yard. Neither are near MFD, mostly for compositional reasons.
I'm also attaching a rough draft of the shot I took of the annular solar eclipse this past summer. The foreground on the lower right is several feet away. The rest...is a little bit farther.
