What some great shots smac posted. These are not in the ballpark compared to those but I need your input. I'm having some trouble with soft focus. No cropping.

The third is a standout. What teleconverter are you using? SMAC is using a top of the line TC build exclusively for the FZ-20.

The focus looks fine without any PP applied.

smac has the TC that is a match made in heaven so there is nothing that can top that.

I will say that your TC does a fine job. smac went in a bit tighter on his shots so I can't really comment for comparison.

The third one is a "prize winner" the birds and the feeder looks sharp against a very nice DOF.

The second one would have been better if the bird did not turn its head. Still a good shot.

The first has a wonderful reflection so the composition is nice. The lack of DOF actually makes it look soft as you say but the subject looks to be in sharp focus to me.

I like them all.

Does you dog bite?

vIZnquest....Thanks for your comments. The dog only bites the UPS guy and the meter readers. We have to watch him when I order camera equipment.
