After searching around for a macro lens and gathering information from users here and from other places they've all come to the conclusion that a 90mm is best suited for my macro needs which are to make bugs/insects my main macro subject.

I would like to know if anyone here has any experience with this particular lens and how they find it in regards with the competition and as a lens overall and maybe if you can share your pictures with me?

The best price I could find for this lens is 354.95 from Jessops and LCE are willing to price match it.

That lens was listed last night at 150 BIN.
By the time I had logged in some ****** had put a bid on it.

I really hate it when people do that .. at 150 it was cheap enough, the only reason I could think of for someone to put a bid on is to spoil it for others.

Ebay can be the most frustrating place in the world, and also the most rewarding. I won my Sigma 100-300 F4 for 720 just before xmas.

It might just be that the bidder was very dumb, and didn't realise that #150.00 was an amazing price. People are moomins on Ebay, I am always listing things BIN with Best Offer, and people just buy for the full price! Not that I am complaining...

If cost is an issue you could always get the manual version on Ebay for about 120. Essentially the same quality and you will probably use mf a lot for insect macro photography anyway.
