It seems to me that versatility is not used as often as it might be in comparisons and if it was a lens like the PL100-400 would score very well.

I agree, and consider this lens to be my most versatile, in that it does many things well both at distance, and close in, as you show quite nicely here.

How about flowers?!

From my garden in Southern California this morning:

Showy Penstemon

Seed Pod of Tropical Milkweed. I've been waiting for one to open, displaying the seeds attached to tufts of fine hairs. Wind will carry these tufts with seeds attached to be deposited elsewhere (wind-borne pollination)

Desert Bird of Paradise. This plant is next to my cedar fence.

Pollen grains of California Fuschia. I carry an achromat with me. When mounted, the MWD is shortened to about 1 foot, providing magnification close in for tiny things. About 3.5 cm. here

Purple Sage flower with ants having breakfast. They go down inside the floral tube for the nectar. With achromat.
