    couple of flowers taken with 32/1.8 - i just wish my ext tubes had made it in time for me to test the lens
    i didnt want to like the lens & thought it was too expensive, i do like it & its a great size -easy to throw the b/ground out of focus

    the large red one is a waratah -the state flower of NSW [i took pic in Victoria]
    the yellow flower is a grevillea, but i am unsure of the scientific name

    Thanks...Google images shows it as "Grevillea Moonlight".
    Also saw it in several different colors as well...a unique and attractive flower.
