I decided to splurge this week and purchase a macro lens I have been looking at for the past couple years. I found I really loved macro photography when I had my Canon A650, so this was a great way to explore back into this world with my DSLR camera.
One of the first pictures I took with the new lens was this one:
I then went to a good friend's house who has a talent for roses and got these 2 shots:
So far I would say the new lens is a success! I will be reading up on it more as I found myself relying on auto a bit more than I like, but I am really looking forward to some more great shots.
Oh, and for the curious new lens is a Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 Macro USM.
