    Photos Venus Lens arrived today

    Well, ordered on Feb 4th, despatched via Snail Mail on Feb 5th, the Venus 2:1 Super Macro lens arrived today (Feb 21st). Not bad from Hong Kong.

    Here it is unboxed:




    And here are the first few photos taken with at, at varying magnifications, 1:1 and 1.5:1 and near as damn it 2:1

    Hard to light the subjects, this is with a ring flash attached to the front at -1EV. All taken at f/11.
