    It's taken me about 30 days to get this lens for my Nikon D60. :mad: I tried eBay where the seller stated the lens was new, it wasn't. Got my money back and the seller got a Neutral. Searched the net for the best price on a new lens. Seller sent it UPS. Driver couldn't find my address, so it was shipped back to the seller. Trying to get my expedited shipping back from the seller now.
    I'm having some learning curve with this lens but this one turned out ok. Let's see your camera/lens images. :smile

    Nice pictures! I don't use anything fancy and maybe I will sometimes in the future.

    Great image Lee.
    How tall of a ladder did you need to shoot it?:)

    Nice, Lee.

    Here's a shot with a Nikkor 200mm Micro of a coin I have a sneaking suspicion you recognize:

    Thanks and super images!

    I'm half way up my copy stand to take a normal shot Larry. A slab image is all the way up to fit it in the viewfinder. :)

    Still love that one Leadfoot and wish it would return home. :)

    I use either my D50 or D200 with a older 60 micro I have never seriously taken pictures of my collection yet

    Great stuff. This is my old Pentax $200 skin diving camera under my soup can lighting system.

    The coin deserves better but I use what I got and try to get my cents worth.

    Dang, WalkingD. I just stopped back here to read the updates and feel like THAT is something out of a Cannon.

    Like the Cannon at the end of the 1812 Overture! Not the camera.:bigeyes:

    I use a Nikon D40x and a Sigma 150mm. No pics handy, but if you search for my posts you can find some I took, mostly of old copper.

    Thanks to all for the compliments so far and posting some super examples! :hail:
