It's HERE!

My package from B & H (Hi Henry!) arrived today at 4:24pm as I was working on some digital elements. I took it out and let it warm up a bit as it had been on the truck since 6am. I checked the tracking regularly since I got my e-mail notice!
When I thought it was safe I put it on my camera and tested it out.

Both pictures are unedited. I don't know what happened with the red on the rose but it is NOT that color. I've got a bit of practice to do (and read the manual) to figure out how best to focus. The lens also makes a bit of noise. I noticed this when I picked it up to put it on the camera. Like something is loose on the inside. I don't see anything shaking around inside and it seems to focus fine but I didn't notice this when I tried one out at National. So I'm going to have to check into this.

More macro photos to come. Have a great weekend!

Even though the rose is not the color you wanted, it's still beautiful

Yeah!!!! I'm so happy for you. I know how much you wanted that lens. The photos are awesome. I can't wait to see what else you photograph. I would call about the noise thing though. You don't want to wait on that.
Have a great weekend!
