Another Peli-Case

I have been on the lookout for a new dividerset for on of my pelican 1510's. The pluckfoam was all but done for. With lenses and body's coming and going, getting one with the foam wasnt the brightest idea ive ever had... (I got it cheap though)

But those dividersets are rather expensive.. So, when i came across a Pelican 1560 with a dividerset for not a too bad price.... BINGO! Its not airline compatible, but hey! I still have 3 1510's for that.

This baby gives me the space to bring everything i need to a shoot.

Now for some nice stickers to personalize it. :)

Still looking for a new dividerset too....

1st result..

With the new Sigma 150mm OS. This flower caught my eye, so i ran out in the rain to shoot it.

I am impressed with the lens. Its sharp, the AF is reasonably fast, and it gets razorsharp results. I took about 7 pics, all with pretty much the same result. Tack sharp.

Here is the image in ultra high res;

The king is dead....

...Long live the king!

I handed off my trusty Sigma 150mm last night to its new owner.. *wipes tear*

And i got me the new version this afternoon! *wipes tear*

First impression;

Solid build, OS works, the lenshoods are neat, just maybe a tad long for my taste..

I cant wait to get it out into the field. (or garden for that matter)

Its a lengthy machine with both the hood and the hood APSC adapter attached... Length almost doubles. Ill have to see how that works.

Last Macro shots...

..With this version of the Sigma 150mm Macro. Ive decided to get the OS version. Since ive completely re-done my garden, i figured i deserved a treat. :)

Since most of the macro's i like to shoot are of little beasty thingies the OS will be a welcome add-on to the best macrolens ive ever owned.
