More infos for you Phillip

The only things that 'bugs' me about the Sigma 105 is the external focusing barrel extending when focusing. I lost good shots because of this before, and too often too. As for its IQ, I agree its a superb lens in all aspect. My own estimation is, its a better lens than its little sister, the 70mm. I also gave that one to my girlfriend BDay for the same purpose too (flower and insects macro). When I look at the MTF charts on Sigma website, the 150mm (with a Internal Focusing) is actually better in terms of resolution. Now for the flash, I use a plain and simple 420EX and use a Lumiquest Softbox to soften the flash output. I intend to get a 50D sometimes this coming spring for the next season of insects. Would like to also get a 150 later on too. Depending on finance, of course.

Cheers and Seasons Greetings !
