Found a Sigma DG EX 105mm Macro for a bargain. This lens is for taking close up pictures - real close like...

Here's an example of a pic I took of the lion on a R50 note. The image is completely untouched (not cropped either), except to re-size it.

Oh ja - it's a bit blurry on the right hand side because the note wasn't completely flat

That's exactly what I got it for - goggas... Only problem is the little buggers never sit still (That's nothing that 5 minutes in the fridge won't cure though :lol: )

Spray the goggas with "freeze it" (liquid nitrogen), just dont drop them, they'l break in a hundred pieces.
