Default FZ35 in AF Macro Mode

I picked the best of the best...funny that the camera is not consistent in AF Macro Mode with focusing at times...probably operator error...I'll shoot some more and try and figure out why I am not getting as many keepers...with the LC-55 I got over twice as many keepers and many better IQ shots for my old eyes...but the Yellow and White Flowers turned out well I thought...

LTZ-

I find the FZ-35/38 becomes much more consistent when spot focus is used with macros.

I used Spot Focus and Metering Sarah, but the wind was so bad that day I do remember a few times I switched to AF Tracking and the FZ still did welll...amazing little camera! Hard to shoot a Buttefly rocking back and forth on a flower with Spot focus...I have had so much fun with the FZ35 that I actually have it above the 7D for price and value in my book...

These are quite fine. I too notice sometimes the camera seems to focus better then other times. Could be me though.
