Default some shots with my 45-200mm panasonic

here are some from yesterdays pool outing. Sorry about the size. Photobucket is slow to resize the pics. I need to resize them before I upload I guess. Doing it after there uploaded seems to take hours to go into effect for some reason.

All very nice images with the two of your children( I think) being especially good.

I am really impressed with the 45-200mm panasonic. I just picked up the 14-42mm panasonic lens and im not that happy with the PQ from it yet. Maybe its just me who cant use i


edit: The little girl is my niece and her momma (my sister) the little boy is mine. he is great. He is also my inspiration for wanting to take better pics.


haha your sig say "
E-30 and more lenses than I know what to do with" you can always sell some to me :-)

If you want better macro form the 45-200, you can get the canon 500d close up lens in 52mm for the panny lens. It will get you very close to 1:1 macro. And it is not to expensive, but high quality glass.

I can't think of a better or more valid reason to improve. Children grow
up in the blink of an eye. Make sure you capture every moment possible.
Those memories will put a smile on your face when you look back at them many years from now.

The 500D is really hard to find these days. I was all over the net as well as the local stores and could not find one new in stock or even used outside of 2-3 on eBay. Finally, late afternoon I found a store in Oregon that had one used in the 58mm mount I needed to use with my 75-300 Olympus.

This is the one you will need, but like greg mention production of the 500D was slow by the quake. Supply hopefully be back to normal soon.
