Well I got my raynox macro lens the other day and took some shots which I'm very pleased with. A little tough to get it focusing but once you figure it out it becomes somewhat easy. Let me know what ya think. Thanks

Very nice, thanks for sharing these pictures and the name of your macro lens :-)

Can you do some macro with zoom when you are using this lens ?

Thanks for the comments guys. To answer your question Boily, for these pictures I used full optical zoom. I did some reserch and thats what most said to use. I think I'm gonna try backing off a bit to see if that helps with depth of field. Also I might consider busting out the tripod since it's a very touchy lens to work with. I'll be posting plunty more pics of the macros in the future so keep an eye out. :-)

Hi, nice pics!

Is there some photoshop blurring? or all blurr is due to macro-focusing?

Is there also any cropping, or u captured the bug as it appears on the pic? What distance was from camera to bugs (i cannot get that close with my P850)?

Thanks!

Silver, very nice shots. I would like to get the Raynox lens myself for my 7590. I have heard the shallow DOF can be rather tricky. Can't wait to see more of your macro posts.

Thanks for the comment Dharzen and Dawn!

Dharzen, to answer your questions the blur is all from the macro lens, no photoshopping. Also no cropping. I did make the picture size smaller for the forums so there actually bigger when you zoom in. And I was maybe 2-3 inches from the bugs.

Hope this helps.
