In Topic: Canon 100mm or Tamron 90mm Macro Lens

26 July 2017 - 08:34 AM

Everyone i know who used the old Canon 100 USM macro would have testified it delivered the quality of a L version lens packed into a non L version.(and that's including me : I had two of them and still have one) 

Its autofocus has a fast grip and the quality of glass is faultless, I never had a single trace of chromatic aberration.

If you can have one second hand, buy it. No brainer.

yeah... just received the mail too. :(

A pity I won't be able to use them for my next trip in august, I was hoping so much.

I'll now have to wait 9 more months before I can start playing with them.

In Topic: Diving Bali & Lembongan - seeking reputable dive operators

Craig,

 

Jetty in PB : Gekodive usually provides 2 morning dives trip on the Jetty, PB facing south the open sea can be a bit rough in the afternoon with surge coming in, hence it's better to dive the jetty (a bit away) in the morning, sometimes you can't ride out of PB in the afternoon.,

 

Pygmies : 60mm usually don't support wetlens such as Aquako as they work by decreasing the focusing distance, 60mm is already close to the subject, so the longer lens you take the better it gets with a diopter. 1,4 multiplier is a pain in the neck for focusing, I'd rather suggest 105 and wetlens +10 or +15 (Subsee, CMC, Aquako, etc.) for pygmies.
