My Canon 100mm F2.8 Macro Lens

Macro photography reveals the detail of the small worlds which seems so familiar but is actually much unknown to us. It magnifies our excitement at the same time.

I like the feeling after pushing myself to the limit upon reaching the peak of Cerok Tokun. It is like releasing my final breath and ready for another rejuvenation. It is addictive. Similarly, macro photography is addictive too, but instead it makes me feeling like losing my last penny and cent: I have bought a Canon 100mm F2.8 macro lens recently.

This dragonfly welcomes you to turn its pictures into your desktop wallpaper. The more it appears, the more I’ll justify my investment.

Of course, I have put myself as one of those in the nature again. I used to assume so each and every time. They never complain no matter how I talk about them. Do you remember I have claimed that a mushroom has been climbing up a tree? It never writes a letter of protest since then.

Congratulations on your new macro lens. I got a 60mm F.28 Canon macro a few months ago and am trying to learn to use it properly.

Excellent macros. I think those lenses are pretty good!

CH said...

It must be a very expensive toy. By the way, your dragonfly has flown to my wallpaper and has a long stay over here.

Cate said...

Nice to see you have taken up macro, you have an eye for it and clearly tons of patience.

The Retired One said...

I bought the same exact lens, Rainfield...have been playing with it all summer!! LOVE IT!

Awesome macro shots. You have done well. I have trouble trying to keep the dragonflies still for me take a good shot.

IHSAN KHAIRIR said...

congrats on procuring a macro lens! the dragonfly is always a delight for macrophotography, because of its habit of perching on the same spot multiple times making it easier for us to wait and shoot...

I am eyeing a Nikon-mount Tamron SP90, but can't afford it yet...

RNSANE said...

What a delightful set of photographs. This guy actually looks so cute - not scary at all but friendly, with its big eyes. That lens is well worth the money!

Mei Teng said...

You bought the Macro L lens? That's a great macro lens...and comes with an expensive price tag too.

I am looking forward to the coming Sunday. I have not really played with my new toy, Canon 100mm f2.8 (without a L) macro lens.

Wow.... Sunday....

jeannette said...

Great shots Rainfield!
Your macro really magnifies what you wanted to show us all along!

It looks like your new lens is paying off with pictures of beautiful creatures unseen with plain lenses.

betchai said...
