Of course, the chance for bee stings and snake bites can preempt that choice of viewing.
Now thats spooky Fred :-). Snakes we don't have and dangerous bees we don't have. That might well make me change what I was taking to be honest, LOL. I'm starting to realise how safe we are :-)

Ok, another thing I switched to about2 weeks ago I forgot about. I now use the auto magnifying mode in the EVF, so it enlarges the image greatly after the shot. That way I can see in detail for about 1-2 seconds, if the image is sharp. If not, shoot it again. I find that feature VERY useful. I'm not sure exactly what Panasonic cameras have that feature, but its good one for macro. I tell ya, Panasonic has done a fine job on their cameras. Very clever IMHO.

These are wonderful shots for 1st attempts. I have the same macro lens, and I don't have anything I would even consider posting, yet. I love the Raynox - very powerful, and it just has a different look. But, I wouldn't suggest it in all honesty as "my first macro lens" if you want results quickly.

Fred and Danny have posted good advice here... thanks!

Unfortunately the fz1/2 does not have this feature. I sure wish it did. Something to look forward to should I ever upgrade.

Macro is now another interest besides IR. Geez, will this ever end? I hope not.:? I appreciate the stepsposted on capturing the fly by nzmacro. I have been considering the Raynox dcr250 but me thinks the I will give a go with dcr150.

jazzmaster1 I like the first one and the eyes of the fly is very kewl indeed.

I must say that this forum especially here for the pana cameras is by far the best I have seen and been a part of. Look forward to it as part of my day.
