Again having some fun with the DCR-250, just liked the look of this one. Makes the water look metallic.

I think the dcr-250 is a +8, ie stupidly strong. I also have the Nikon 6T and use it when I am trying to get a better quality image. Its not that the dcr-250 is poor quality its just so powerful that every photo almost becomes abstract and can loose its context. You can back off the zoom down to about 7x before vignetting comes into play and that can help with perspective.
I like the nikon 6T and dcr-250, its just that they have different uses. The 6T is for taking "nice" photos and the dcr-250 is the "fun" lens. Beware though the DOF with the dcr-250 is 1-2mm! and is extremely difficult to use. A lot of trial and error.

The link below shows some photos taken with the dcr-250

Although I have no basis for comparison, I'm on board with everything you've said about the DCR-250, m8t. Best description of this one I've read. Kind of a strange beastie, is that dcr 250... but the picture have a unique look that I like.

Great macros, as always.
