New Gears in the House IX

This is my first 1:1 macro lens and first non-Canon lens. Lets welcome my 3rd lens in my lineup - Tamron SP AF 90mm f/2.8 Di 1:1 Macro!

I bought this from a nice gentleman in the forums. This lens is highly rated for its sharpness and reasonable pricing.

Thanks Alfred for treating me a cup of coffee and paying my parking ticket. =)

Here are some pics I have tried out just now:

(1:1 size, no crop)

(100% crop)

Macro Photography is damn hard to master. You will need a lot of practice and patience. the DOF is so shallow that even 1mm movement will make big difference between "got it" or "miss it".

Price: RM 1,100
Discount: RM 100
Net: RM 1,000

Total spending to date: RM 5,742.75
