This part shows the results of my testing with the 80mm - tomorrow promises to have clouds so I'll be using the 55LS.
Overall I'm very pleased with what I'm getting and feel the downside is caused by user error more than equipment failure. I started this project doing handheld shots and feel I should continue that way. I've had a few missed focus point however again I'll take the blame.
Three images follow, in each case the non-post processed is followed by one that is slightly processed. The last image surprised me so I had to offer 3-samples.
