    The vr on the macro is a super idea … my 60mm doesn’t have it … fine for tripod work … but have you ever tried to capture the whiskers on a caterpillar with your camera mounted on a tripod??? Not happening!!!! Seriously … I’ve nearly fallen over in a dead faint while shooting with that 60mm no-vr lens, breath held!!!!!!!!! When you’ve gotten a grip on the ins and outs of it, give me your thoughts. No rush!!!!!! Hugzz!!

  • LOL i’ve gotten into the most outlandish positions already too.. really must compare notes teehee… tho cant imagine focussing on a caterpillars whiskers.. just hope the auto’s up to it..
