Lovely sharpness and great detail, esp. when you look at the hairs on the legs.
Really good shot, good arrangement of the focus plane, chrysoberyl.
When I look at the bg blur I see not too much sharpening and a quite good bokeh for a macro.
Congats for the shot as well as for the acquisition.
Thanks very much for the compliments! I have begun relying on AF with this lens. I haven't noticed a missed shot yet. Of course, my subjects tend to be pretty static. Still, I was accustomed to using MF primarily, so this is quite a change for me.
