Nice looking photographs, especially the spider.

I would have loved to know the aperture you took those pics at. The depth of field of the 2nd shot is near perfect. The rear of the snail's shell might have looked better if it was in sharper focus, but that's perhaps over critical on my part. The sharp spines give an added punch to the picture by making an obvious statement.

it's an excellent lens, but needs to be stopped down to f/4 for critical sharpness. these lenses go for cheap i love them!

Nice shots there. I'll only say that the composition of the first and third is slightly awkward due to the out-of-focus elements within; these being the pedal in the first and the spider's body in the last (it looks like you focused on the web). There's little to dislike about the second one, though.

Oh my dear Goro Yoshida! That is a nice lens, for a nice price!

Stunning pictures, too.

Want!
