For 250!!!!!!! with box, warranty card, and receipt.

i feel super excited. just wondering though how people are getting those nifty crazy bug shots, this lens goes to 1:1, but in teh images people produce, its seems more than 1:1, are you just cropping heavily? or TC? or extention tubes?!

are you sure its the macro USM version? 250 is like $150-$200 cheaper than it goes used. There's also a 100mm f/2 out there.

Thanks I know i could have got a better pic if I had more time... but the lil guy was walking and I was worried about him flying around and stinging me.... i hate bugs but they do make good subjects to shoot. Its a concur your fears kinda thing :mamoru: especially with spiders!
