Re: Bees with the 100wr

Great pictures.  I always find that bees are prone to dart away just as I have framed the shot.  I am looking forward to the spring when I hope to capture some similar shots with my newly acquired Tamron 99mm 2.8.

Just an ordinary day, Dean - 11 am here.  I actually thought you must be up late: the time difference is obviously not what either of us thought!

Re: Bees with the 100wr

Nice macros, as usual :-). I remember your last year shots with Lester Dine 105/2.8. How do you compare these two?

Re: Bees with the 100wr

Nice shots and I'm glad that you are having a nice Summer down under.  My bees were out yesterday even though it was only 39 degrees...........................Jim

Re: Bees with the 100wr

Hi Miles thanks for your complements and you are right they are busy little fellows, you need to keep your shutter speed up or use flash. I find the built in flash and 100wr do a very good job, you will find the same with your Tammy.

Re: Bees with the 100wr

Thanks Greyser, both are excellent when compared with ring flash mounted. The Elicar (LD) has a slight blue cast to it when using AWB but has this intriguing smooth sharpness. I really need to do some in house tests. I have these 2, a dfa 50 and Da 35 ltd and like each one. Differences are really subtle apart from the obvious perspective but certainly the Elicar has the most different rendering; typical of film lenses ie not as contrasty.

Re: Bees with the 100wr

Very nice.

You actually used the pop-up flash? No vignetting? (I thought regular flashes were good only to within 0.7 m.)
