    A titch more DoF would have been a good thing. Not that easy to determine from the jpg preview on the camera's lcd though.

    This is lovely.
  • David de Groot said:
    Well it could have been a lot better... I should have stopped down a wee bit to get more depth. Oh well, it looks ok small :)

    Something is new with you. Did you buy a new lens? I love you flower pictures, David.
  • David de Groot said:
    Almost - just borrowed some lenses from a visiting friend :)

    the results of 135/f2L and your friend's 300mm with f4L look pretty similar; both DOFs are great but 135 is much portable and probably cheaper too.. great DOF :o)
  • David de Groot said:
    Yep, the 135 f/2 is definitely more portable. A really really nice lens. I muffed the DoF on this one though - too narrow, otherwise it would have been a really good shot.
