Well spring is coming into view, and today i picked up my first outdoor macro of the year.
The quality did surprise me back home. No sun, lots of wind against te flower, and my cheap Sigma 70-300. But the lens did well, one of it's disadvantage's turned out to be a advantage.
You need at least 1 meter distance to focus, therefore the dof is greater then when you would be able to close into the subject with the lens.
