BillboTex,

No nothing of the kind. I think your new Nikon can make the trick

simple,

Know I'm being repetitive, but I tried to improve the ant. The ant is the "slow rider" (hate those personifications, but for once)

Have you noticed all the "bonus insects" when trying close uo photo? They are everywhere - might be extremely small - but they are there all right

//T

Improved ant. There is another to the right I just noticed. Tried to sharpen that one up too

I guess I forgot to mention that I sent the P100 back, the still quality was not too good in my humbleopinion, even though all other features worked great. And I bought the Panasonic Lumix DMC-G2 with 14mm - 42mm and 70mm - 300mm.

Picture quality is much improved (sensor size is double the Nikon)!

Now I am just looking around for a snail with an ant on his back!........hahahaha
