Default A dragonfly with the humble panny 45-200

Yeah, macro would be nice, and the tiny details aren't quite there, and the cam was set at higher ISO than I would have liked had I been thinking more carefully (2500). But I think this looks just great at this size or maybe even a bit larger.

That is pretty cool Sammy. I like the humble 45-200. And I like it twice as much with the 10mm ext tube. It's almost as if the tube made my copy of the lens sharper, if that's even possible.

I think it looks pretty good, I like the colors and the band of teal.

I had some decent shots with the 45-200, it was just that for me the extra reach of the 70-300 is more useful for the wildlife I like to shoot.

Thanks guys.

I have more success with it shooting things at medium length, or maybe at the near end of the focus range like here. On the long end things get soft, but I think that also has much to do with me pushing the shutter speed and getting blur. I've only used it a limited amount with the EM10 so far and its improved stabilization though, and I bet it'll be a great improvement. I think it's also a tad large for what it is, compared to the Oly 40-150 or the newer Panasonic zooms.

I can't shoot those things worth squat. Very nice. I'd be happy with it for sure if it was mine.
