    It's about 15cm, can you believe 2,5 years old only. It's mate is about 7-8cm. Both caught at the same time, both about 15mm.

    That's awesome gMAN. Is that a fish eye lens or just a filter attachment? Awesome pic!!!

    Nope, this is with the 105mm. You must use manual focus. It's a bit of a drag at first, but you get used to it.
