Happy New thingy.
As a birthday treat, I bought myself a Tamron 90mm f2.8 macro.
As I can't picture myself on all fours taking pictures of marbles, here's what I use it for.
At f4 and 5.6, it resolves better than my Canon 50mm 1.8

Yes, but the character was molesting a sheep after he'd been for a tramp in the woods.

I have the Tamron 90 as well. It has outstanding sharpness and bokeh.

I didnt see this b4, Zig.

It's jolly sharp isnt it!

Hey, tonight I've been photographing macro peanuts. Yes. Really.

Now I'm going to lie down with a bowl of water.
