A few pictures of a flower I took testing out the macro capability of the 24-70 f2.8 L lens I rented for the weekend.

Very nice Asnow, but that 2nd one is amazing. Separation from background makes the flower jump right out at you.
You are going to love using "The Brick", it is a beauty for sure, but heavy, as the name implies. (I know I love mine)

Lovely. That second one is my favourite as well! Great stuff!

Thanks HBG and Iggy. The first one would have been my favourite, however it is not perfectly tack sharp. Had a look at the exif data and probablty too shallow depth of field f2.8. The second and third ones were f5. As a result I agree the 2nd one is the best. Yes, the brick is heavy but wow that is a great lens.
