Saly, thanks for that information. I realize there is no "right" or "wrong," but that is helpful in understanding the range of possibilities. Since the distance is 12-18" that opens up more opportunities (rather than 3-5"). Some of those critters object to close scrutiny.

Excellent work, Saly. Particularly, the umbrella-like centre of the flower. You're doing great with your close-up lens.

Thank you Roger, square one, Raghu, geoper, catalex!!!

And Roger, you're right! Nothing more maddening than sneaking up to a bug and have it fly away while you are trying to focus!!!

Saly, for my FZ40, do I need anything (adapter ring, etc.) besides the LC55?

You've twisted my arm!

Carol, yes, you need the adapter/extension tube. Same one you need for the LT55 teleconversion lens. I don't know the exact part number for the FZ40, it is DMW LA-something. Yours is longer than mine because your camera zooms more. It should be listed in your Advanced User Manual, under the "Connecting to other equipment" or "Using the Conversion Lens" section.

I hope you get one, I adore the LC55!!!

Thanks banksy! That flower is called Scabiosa and bugs LOVE it! I've gotten more shots at this shrub than anyplace else. I'm going to plant some in my yard soon.
