It's nice to see the pics, but it would also be nice to know what equipment you're using to get such pictures. Is that just the bare Olympus C-2040?

It's a 2040 with a reversed Zuiko 50mm f/1.8 lens and a Sunpak DS20 flash

Are these shots cropped at all? They're fantastic.

I have the same 50mm lens with my Oly C700 but find it get's TOO close and I can't zoom out because of the viginetting. I should hopefully be getting a pentax F1.4 soon and hope that will help a little.

Yes, they are all cropped a bit. I have to leave my camera at full zoom to get the least amount of viginetting. I have no zooming ability with the camera when using the lens. I just leave it on manual focus, and move the camera closer/further away until the subject is in focus through the LCD (the lens is about 1-2inches away), then I take as many photos as I feel I need until I think I got the best shot.

Different lenses will vignette different amounts I have read. I just happened to have the Zuiko f/1.8 50mm sitting around
