Photo taken of my daughter today while we were experimenting with a slave flash (which she was holding in her right hand). Looks like it worked.

Very impressive!

That macro is a splendid portrait lens; it's certainly sharp and the color (ie: skin tone and eye color) is magnificent. Also the exposure is spot on; there are no 'hot spots' from your strobe lights, only the tiny points of light on your daughter's eyes that in theory might have been caused from bright sun light coming through an unshaded window. It certainly doesn't appear to be artificially illuminated; that's for sure.

Thanks very much guys. I think the tiny points on her eyes are caused by my in built flash which I had set down to a -2 exposure so that I didn't get any blown out highlights. The window directly in front of her had the shades drawn and the light patch on her RH forehead is from a small overhead window. Yes, it is an outstanding lens, I've really fallen in love with it and it was worth every cent.
