Great pics,

Thanks.

I have the non L 100mm and will try the AI Servo with single AF point in the future, I've always shot my macros with MF.

I'd be interested to know how it goes, especially if you can compare with the L.

There's something I should mention in case someone gets the wrong impression - you still have to use good macro technique with AF, like positioning the camera carefully, holding it steady, and judging when the subject is in focus. It doesn't magically make great photos all by itself, but if you're a competent macro photographer it takes away the most difficult and error prone part of it (which some people will hate 'cos they like to do things the hard way just for the sake of it ).
