I agree the 2nd one could use more DoF. I've heard other friends having the same comment.

Two more. Tiny flowers of the spider plant, smaller than a US quarter. The 2nd one was using Tripod and self-timer.

I got a PK adapter from Santa so I had a quick play with my version of this lens - single flash on camera:

ILCE-7M3    ----       f/1.0    1/125s    ISO 1000

Even at f/16 I couldn't keep the peg (which is around 8mm long) fully in focus at this angle. And I need to clean my sensor!
