    Picked up a Vivitar 55/2.8 for cheap this week. This is not the macro version, so it only focuses to about 3 feet. I may get a set of extension tubes to go with it, if I decide to keep it. I took it and my Vivitar 28/2.8 Close Focus RL Edition on a 10 mile hike today. The 55 is not great, but not terrible, either. Pics 3-6 below are from the 55. Pic 4 is a working coal mine just south of the state forest I was hiking. Beautiful morning to be in the woods.

    Thanks guys. That little salamander in #7 came up out of the water and scurried in front of me as I was photographing the creek in pic #6. I couldn't let opportunity pass, so I quickly lowered the tripod to ground level and captured the image.
