    Playing with the Tamron 90 manual focus lens this morning. This was shot at 1:2 without the extension tube. It has about 40% cropped out.

    Did you make the "rain/misting'? :)

    Very nice capture indeed.

    Looks like bath time!
    That's' one scary looking critter.
    Glad they're not that big in real life. :sword:

    What? You guys serious?
    Deep fried spiders are the best.
    You can either eat it as is or add to your salad with dressing with your choice. :)
    Think of them as crouton without the carb.

    Yum yum. My mouth's watering..... ;)

    Thanks Dave. Manual focusing with the x-t1 is a pleasure because of the enlarged view using the focus assist button. This is especially true when using a tripod.

    Great capture. I had this lens and sold it a long time ago. An absolutely razor sharp lens ! Miss it.

    Great photos; creepy subject! And I was hoping those drops were bug spray instead of rain water!

    Those Tamron 90 macro lenses are great, nice long portrait lens too.
    Great shot of the spider (even though spiders aren't great).

    For years and years I've heard nothing but good things about this lens.
    You show it off to its best! Excellent shots

    That's a great shot - at 1/7 I guess you hadn't had your morning coffee yet! I'm glad to see that other places have ugly spiders too;). I've seen so many here on the forum that look so cuddly and cute you want to take them home whereas my local spiders look as if they've been sleeping rough all their lives:rolleyes:.

    Great shot; I love how suspended water droplets get that internal prism effect and reflect facets in the image.

    Thanks one and all. Most of the spiders would dart into their funnels as soon as I walked past them but this little guy must have thought he was looking real good today and thought it would be a good idea to have his/her portrait made. To Jamie, I wish I could handhold at 1/7...in my dreams. :)
    I think it was early 1990's that I bought this lens for my Canon T90. Every other piece of equipment is long gone. It seems that almost all the macros in the 90 range from all the manufacturers were good lenses. It's a pretty good way to do macro work on the cheap by picking up used ones. This lens is also very good for non macro work although I rarely use it that way. Happy shooting everyone.
