another spider should be okay. Pretty soon I am going to leave my backyard and shoot something other than a close-up.:-)

Thanks Don, yes I was using the 6t. This time I was actually using the 6t with a TCON-14B stacked on it. I do that sometimes as it increases the working distance and I sometimes use the viewfinder rather than the LCD. Although this shot was not at full zoom so it made no big difference. Sorry, a lot more info than you asked for.

Nice shot. So you stack the Tcon on the 6T? What threads are they? I take it the Tcon is 55mm or is the 14B different from the 17 and the 6T is 62? 62 - 55? Sounds interesting. I suppose this gives you more DoF then?

LOL Tcook, you sound like me a good month ago...all I did were close-ups in and around the house. tee hee It is interesting how when I got my FZ5 back in July I found that close-ups were the easiest for me to get focused on as it afforded alot of opportunities. Macros make a yard really big for traveling. lol

Nice shot. It looks like it might have a bug in its mouth. )

Thanks all, and I have to use a step ring to mount the 6t to the FZ50 but the TCON-14B is 62mm and mounts directly to the 6t.

Ah, many thanks, I see, I have the TCON17, which unfortunately has a 55mm thread, so not sure if it would be worth having a stepup 55-62, 6T, 62-55 stepdown, TCON17, mmm would get some vignetting, but I expect at full zoom it wouldnt matter?
