Sigma 50-150mm and 500D

It seems I have found a happy marriage of a lens I now own and a gateway to good macro work; the 500D seems to work very nicely on the Sigma zoom, certainly easier to manage over the AF-S 70-300mm VR. In theory, the Nikon zoom should work better as its optics are designed better for close-up, the Sigma is often pooh-poohed since its MFD is not close enough, but the proof is right here.

I used the Nikon dedicated electronic cable release and it was just the ideal accessory. Many of the shots I took, today, were at 1/4 second @ f/16, the wind didn't play its usual havoc.
