With what else, but the E520, 50-200, EX25 extension tube and FL50R flash.

Hi Greg,

Love the detail on all the images but the IQ of the 2nd shot is just perfect:cool:

................talk about 'teaser' images

These are great, I enjoy seeing them and am thinking, I gotta get me one of them EX25's and have some fun trying closeups.

It has been quite a while since I've been to Arlington Camera.

I love the stuff you are doing with the E520.

The DOF is the first thing I noticed. Then I noticed its at f11. The 50-200 really holds together nicely at f11. I don't think I've ever went that far with mind. I'll have to loose the fear of the high f-stops numbers cause you did very well with it here.

Thanks Greg.

Yep, using the EX25 thedepth of field is really narrow, so I'll close it down pretty far to keep there from being just a sliver of the image in focus, and shooting that close, even bouncing the flash, the FL50R is more than powerful enough to keep the ISO's low. At normal distances I'll usually not stop down past f5.6 when using flash.

I remember the work from last year you did with the EX-25 and the 70-300. It is on my wish list.
