I thought I would keep everyone up to date with my attempts to use reversed lenses. Taken with the FZ10 and Pentax Super-Takumar 50mm f/1.4 lens reversed in front of the FZ at 10x zoom. f/8, 1/60s, iso 50 and Sunpak 383 flash (bounced).

I found this little guy (~1mm long) in my wine and while he cleaned him self off and got over his hangover I tried to take a few photos. Took about 100 and maybe 5 came out! Not really what I would call a good success rate but its a good bit of fun. The original image was a little soft which I think is due to the fungus on my cheap lens! I guess thats what you get when you pay $2.75. I did a pretty aggressive sharpening in PS but I don't think the image suffered too much.

Comments and criticism welcome.

I know it's only a fly but years of horror movies haveconditioned me to be frightened of anything with red eyes! :evil:.

Thanks for the laugh. Your hard work paid off. Love this shot. Looks dreamy or like he's coming in from a fog. Amazing that you could get a tiny fruitfly to look so big.
