Thanks for posting, Zeshane. The EPL-1 is a good looking camera, it makes a nice subject.

In looking at your images, it looks like the focus point was on the lens, rather than the body. What f stop were you using? It seems on my monitor that the depth of field is rather shallow, so you must have been shooting with a wide opening. I would be curious how the results would vary under a range of f-stops. Which lens were you using?

The D7000 is a very nice camera, I am sure you will enjoy it.

Thanks Steven. I was shooting with the 60mm micro lens. I usually shoot with F/8 and above to get proper DOF with this micro lens. The first and last image is shot at f/11 and still the DOF is shallow. Focusing distance varied between 1 - 2 ft and that might be the reason for shallow DOF.

I will shoot this again next week. Will try f/16 and f/22 to see how the results come out. Also I have read that at f/16 and above diffraction makes the photograph a little soft especially in the DSLRs due to their tiny sensors compared to the large format cameras. So maybe someone with extensive experience in shooting macro can shed some light on this.
