This is amazing, love it .. About the lens, do you face problems that it doesnt have a VR when shooting??! Do you have to use a tripod or flash??! Or a handheld macro shots would be fine??! I would appreciate your answer ..
First of all sorry for the late reply! And thank you. Glad you like it
Lack of image stabilization haven't really bothered me that much to be honest. Besides only lens with effective, in my opinion at least, image stabilization for macro work is Canon EF 100mm f/2.8L IS as it has hybrid IS.
I try to use tripod of some sorts when ever it is possible but in nature this isn't always the case. For example this shot has been taken hand held with natural light. I just had to raise up the ISO a bit
