Well after much hunting I still could not find the 60mm macro so I ended up getting a great deal on the 50mm compact macro. I think my next lens will be the 100mm, but for now this lens does great. I used it this weekend on my new EOS 40D and had some good results. These were all shot off hand in jpg format with no photoshop of any kind. Unfortunatly for me I had to use some flash several times due to a lack of natural light.....so I am not pleased with some of the pictures. I use flash almost never so it is hard for me to get used too....a ring light or macro light could be in my future...with that said I hope you enjoy... Anyone else out there using any macro light set ups that are not 600 dollars???? Let me know!!!!!
