I've seen all the fantastic macro shots posted on this forum and look forward to seeing many more. At the other end of the scale we have the 12x zoom (and although not doing a lot for photographic quality the extra 4x digital zoom).

The shots below were taken early evening in an overcast Brussels, with the light fading fast. I estimate the distance to the tunnel (bottom in the 3rd picture) at just over 2 miles (3.2km). I'm amazed at the detail and clarity of the shots given the conditions and that they were taken handheld – a testament to a great camera and great lens.

1x




12x




48x

to demonstrate the range the FZ'z are capable of, here are a couple i took back in January (on a much prettier day than any we've had here since the middle of March!). the first shot of downtown Seattle was taken at 3x zoom, from a viewpoint on Queen Anne Hill just north of the downtown district. for the second shot, i just zoomed in on Mount Rainier in the background - optical only, no digital zoom. for reference, the distance from where i stood to the mountain is approximately 55 miles...

Thanks for the pics squirl033. Truly amazing considering as you sayyou were about 55 miles from Mount Rainier.

I wished I worked in Seattle and not Brussels :lol:

Off to Munich next week, so I might get some mountain shots if the weather improves over here in Europe.
