these look really great LT, the detail is quite nice with that conversion lens. and you did well in keeping the cam steady, but i do agree about -1/3 or so would make them pop a little more. #1 and #10 are a couple of the better butterfly shots I have seen in a while. nice series.

As far as the G1 or G2 no I haven't Clint...but I have saw excellent shots from these cameras and everyone loves them? Had me wondering also, but my stable is full for now...lol...
Glad he enjoyed it. A micro 4/3rds may be my next endeavor. Still reading and gathering info.

Thanks for the kind words Dustin...I am slowly learning, but it seems I wait until I get the shots to apply the learning...lol...

I am think the OIS on the FZ series is one of the best IS systems around...I thought the Canon IS on the SX30 would be much better, but it's not better, and I wondering if it as good...it's looks more steady in the EVF, but in reality it didn't perform as well? thats is what seems to be giving the soft shots on the SX30...I am still confused by it's performance? with a CCD it should be sharper? even at long focal lengths?

...But, how can you keep the BEE steady...??? Do you nail them, or better glue them? I always end up with a moving from the wind flower, while the bee is... gone most of the times...alexander

Kibaris - I think it just takes a LOT of patience. Steady the camera and focus, repeat over and over until one bee decides to stay on a flower one second longer..... Or, you could pick one flower and set up and wait for a bee to come. Either way, it takes many tries.

Enjoying your photos. I recently upgraded from the FZ28 to the FZ40 and still trying to figure out how best to do macro. I don't have the adapter and have only attached a 52mm macro filter directly to the lens barrel or used the snap on Raynox macro/micro filters. I have a pic to post soon. Is there an advantage to using the adapter to attach macro filters?

Thanks,
Beth
