Canon 28-90 kit lens (not so great after a year of hard labor, but starts out good)
Canon 70-300 (was good, but wanted a macro, started having motor problems after 2 years)
Canon 50mm 1.8 (Awesome! beautiful shots and a great price)
Phoenix 19-35mm (nice wide angle, no problems yet, good quality)
Tameron 28-300mm Macro (heavy, not a dedicated macro, not great)
Sigma 28-80 (very clean, fast focus, light)
Sigma 15mm full frame fish eye (heavy but shots are crystal clear, don't like/or use the gel filter)
Sigma 28-300mm Macro (awesome!)
Opteka Auto Focus DG Macro Extension Tube Set (not glass, but great for Macro)
Right Angle View Finder (used it a couple of times for on the ground shots, works fine)
Battery Grip (awesome, makes portrait shots super easy and has clip for AA batteries)
Body Armor (Great protection, takes a while to get used to, protects LCD as well)
Tripod ($15 at Walmart! Can't lose! LOL)


Dreams listed below:

Glass wanted:
Sigma 10 - 20mm f/3.5 EX-DC HSM Autofocus Zoom Lens For Canon Cameras $650 :yikes:
Sigma 10mm f/2.8 EX DC HSM Fisheye Lens $650 :yikes:
Canon EF 50mm f/1.2L USM Autofocus Lens $1500 :yikes:
Sigma 50-500mm f/4.5-6.3 DG OS HSM APO Autofocus Lens $1600 :yikes:

Camera Wanted:
Olympus E-P2 Pen Digital Macro 4/3 Camera Kit w/17mm M.Zuiko Lens & FL-14 Flash $1100
Canon EOS-1V Film Camera $1700 :yikes:

Figured I'd list it all to cover your questions. :gap:

Well I tried shooting a baby Black Widow (about 1cm body length) that I found, but it didn't turn out good, so I'm not going to use it.
Freaky being an inch and a half away from that spider for 30 shots.

This one turned out the best (which is pretty sad)

I like the lady bug picture.  I really like the subtlety of the grass in the lower left of the shot.  If you could have gotten more of the body in focus, would have stepped up the picture.  But overall its a good picture.  Especially dealing with bugs can be tricky.

I like the fly picture too, but the only thing that pulls my eye away from the fly, is the flowers in the foreground that is OOF.  I like the balance of colors of the fly, background and flower.  Not one stands out more, they help enhance the scene.

Thanks, I'm working on the whole focus thing, right now my DOF is about .25cm but I found a way to get it up to 1cm that I have to try next time.
