    Thanks wave, my last macro was a 105 non os lens and thought it would be a sideways upgrade so I went for the 150

    Thanks wave. The main reason I went for the 150 was, I mainly shoot bugs, with the old 105 I was so close I scared them away before I got the shot. Touch wood the 150 will cure this problem... Graham
