Hello Panasonic fans,

With my lovely FZ-20 at "TIFF" quality..."A dry leave" as I named!

P at 200 ISO (Sorry my Picasa 2.6 free photo software can write me the EXIF data)

Enjoy,

Peace,

Alex 007:|

A beautiful series. I also like the hand and cigar the best.

Narmer, between you, Touchnye and Seemolf, I might as well give up on this and take the battery out of the FZ. I can only admire the work you all do.

As a side note: You do have beautiful old world scenery. We are now so diversified here, that nothing hardly reaches 75 years old, before it is destroyed for something more modern and ugly. I do envy your culture and history.

Thanks Sven. Yes, and it was a good quality one. In the scrambled eggs' paddle it did a good job (and even in our bellies).
Anyway I hope I can capture some excellent qty pics like yours next months, I mean spiders' webs with dew droplets and DFs with dew on them in the early morning.
Must go to the "Hell's Valley" (a place here in Matese mountains) next summer.

Bayourebel, you re right, though I like places where human intervention is minimal or only a "ghost" (abandoned villages, monuments and sites). But Louisiana channels must be a good place too, full of trees, dragonflies, snakes, gators...

Hi Francesco,

my John Shaw book will be delivered tomorrow.
So I will not watch any threads in the next weeks ;-)

I remember that you stacked a Nikon lens in reversed order some time ago.
This helped to avoid some distance between the lenses.
I tried this trick with my elpros and it helps against curvature of the field!

A symetric design is always better!

The results are demonstrated here (somewhere near the bottom): http://freenet-homepage.de/seemolf/achromats.html

cheers

Sven

Dear Sven

Honestly I did not think that there was some difference: thought each achromatic lens assemblage was symmetrical...

I use to mount my Nikon 6T reversed beacuse I screw it on one side of a 62-72 step down ring, where the 5T is mounted on the other side. The whole is then threaded on the FZ20 plastic stock adaptor (the one for the hood).

The "reversed" 6T falls within the hood and the5T outside (in normal direction).
So when the FZ20 lens protrudes out in the hood, it comes very close to the 6T.

IF I mounted both lenses in the same direction up on the step ring, and out of the hood, they d be too far from the outer FZ lens, thus certainly the quality would be bad.

Yet I have never mad a test to see if the direction of my achromats has some effect on the final IQ.
