It's a smugmug pro account.

4x6's 4.99
5x7's 5.99
8x10's 7.99

I don't offer anything larger than 8x10 through SM cause it's more cost effective for me to get them printed through Costco. I have the customer contact me directly, I send them a test crop (for anything largar than 8x10) and if it's ok, I have Costco print it and send it to them.

I sell the original digital image for 15.00.

Edit:

Wallets (4x4) 5.99
lol i love Costco... And not because i work in the Electronics department but because of the great prices... oh and the fact that i learn stuff about photo printing cause the manager loves me

I think it's a case of low supply when it comes to the 600 in particular.

The 400 and 500's are around if you look for them but waiting lists are still in the 8 month range. Production of these lenses is slow and small in quantity.

Following Dr4gon's wisdom that everyone should own a macro lens I would like to get one, and I think I have it down to three choices:

Sigma 70mm f2.8 EX DG Macro for £349.95

OR

Sigma 105mm f2.8 EX DG Macro for £352.95

OR stretching the money ceiling a little further, is it worth to shell out for a proper Nikon lens...

Nikon 60mm F2.8G ED AF-S for £387 @ Park Cameras or £385 @ Mifsuds

I would imagine the Nikon to be better quality, but is it worth losing the focal length of the Sigma's? In a current DSLR magazine they say for macro you should look for 100mm+ for insects so as not to get too close to them. People with experience, speak up

The bigger the better as far as I'm concerned. 1000 pixels on the long edge should be the minimum, anything lower and the poster should be taken out and shot. Your shot is another example of why I want need a macro lens

If you don't have a normal lens already, the Nikkor will double as a portrait lens.

First gadget from RRS. Exceptionally well made, 75 lb. capacity!!
This is really an awesome head. Also mounts on my Wimberly to provide lateral movement (which I'll never use).
On the monopod tilts front to back only, no side to side motion which is exactly what I prefer for sports. Can be adjusted to allow desired amount of force required to tilt lens, and it STAYS.. No creeping or loosening.

Very high quality product.





Just enough capacity to hold my 50mm f/1.4..

Yeah, read the OP, it's cool so long as no side is more than 1024 pixels (plus or minus a few).

All these lenses will give you 1:1 magnification, so it's a question of how much working distance you want. The longer the focal length, the further you can be from your subject at 1:1. Personally I use a 60mm and don't find the working distance a problem. Also, the longer the focal length of a macro lens, the more hand shake there will be.

Nevertheless, go for the Nikon, you won't have to think twice about outstanding image quality and most importantly, reliability (Sigma has some QC issues).

One other lens you might consider is the Tamron 90mm f/2.8 Di Macro 1:1 SP AF, very good IQ. However the Nikon still trumps all and auto focuses much faster than the Tamron or Sigma lenses.

And lastly, as Moots says it makes for a good prime/portrait lens. For which reason having a shorter focal length like 60mm would make it more versatile.

In short, the Nikon hands down

I would choose the Nikon, but as GT said, it depends no your subject and the working distance you want.

Ouch no wonder they were quick to snap up your offer.

50 1.4 - Nice.

Hey Muffin did you have a look at the Tamron 60mm f/2? I think it seems unique for what it is. It also depresses me that most of the 3rd party macros in Australia are at the same price as the genuine ones (Nikon 60mm, Tamron 90mm, Sigma 105mm)
