Very nice. Any chance you could figure out where the EXIF is getting lost? It would be really useful to easily see the settings on these.

I'm envious of the light you have there LTZ - 1/1000s at ISO100! I'm struggling to get 1/100s at ISO400 here in the UK at the moment

Can't you just click on the photo and go to my FlickR acct and then top left...Actions...down to view EXIF data...doesn't this work?

Saly the FZ100 has an improved focusing system it's called AF Sonic...works like a champ...better than FZ35 or FZ40...

The 600mm shot was cropped so it looks larger than the 840mm EZ Zoom...I'm guestimating on the 20ft if you look in the first wide photo of the series you can see him/her on the weed stalk (At least I can as I know where to look maybe?) I was standing down in the middle of a 4ft wide ditch shooting off monopod...
