Hi Narmer, I`m using a DCR-150 at present but I`m planning on buying a 250 soon for smaller subjects/better closeups without having to crop. I was actually looking through your macros and trekking galleries the other day, you certainly know how the get the best out of the FZ20, I found the pics very inspirational.Thanks for the feedback, glad you like these shots.

Man you ARE getting close. When you get that 250 we are really going to see something.

Now that is getting close, you must have a trained fly that poses for you. Very well done, great detail.

Thanks Annie, the flies aren`t so much trained, as taking pity on the idiot with the camera who keeps chasing them round the garden LOL
Seriously though, the species i`ve been photographing seems more tolerant of being approached closely that the other flies that have been around.Once you get within a certain range I think they cease to regard you as a threat.

If only the DCR was a larger diam. lens, you d probably need the 250 (+8) only.
For less extreme magnification I use Nikon 5T+6T (+4,4) this similar to the DCR150, and for even higher ones a reversed dSLR 55-55mm (+21 / +18).

although I'm 6ft6 I'm scared of anything with more than four legs so currently I'm having a sit down after looking at your pictures.... :shock:



..... but amazing pictures really appreciate the quality if not the subject matter :lol:



dont know if my heart could take it if you get the next lens up



keep up the good work though
