This time it's for me. I'd been eyeing a macro lens for some time now, and when I read the positivereviews about it, saw some samples, and won two photo contests, I thought I could treat myself. I ordered it yesterday from a local online store (always buy local; the shop is located in Osaka) and received it today! Why shop retail? It's more expensive and you lose time and money traveling (shipping was free).
The delivery box
The box, master!
We'll pass on my quick product shot.
And then, time for the first shot:
AAARRRRGGGGHHHH! The lens fogged up in my apartment after spending the night in the shipping company's depot! Oh well, we'll all have to wait...
