Fred,

Wow:!:Great shots. I really like the first three. shows how nice the FZ5 works with each lens, and on it's own. Looks like you pick a winner:-)

Enjoy and keep posting pics.

-Brett

Good stuff Fred, as an old FZ1er I am following your experiences with the FZ5 knowing one day I will have to make a choice.

Fred -

These are outstanding. Among the most detailed moon shots I've ever seen posted here.

I will have to remember these settings. The moon is a bright object, it's easy to blow it out.

What time of day (er... night) did you take these shots?

Nick

Henry - These were handheld. 1/160s is plenty fast enough for handheld with image stabiliztion. For birding you certainly wont need a tripod. I commend the 55mm Canon tl55 1.45x tele converter with the fz5. Anything bigger is going to put some stress on the stock plastic adapter. Until a 3rd party metal adpter becomes available keep it small. The tl55 works great with the fz5.

Nick - These shots were taken around 8:30pm. It was totally dark. The full moon is another animal. It's really bright. The settings thereare around f4.6 and 1/400s. The oly c210 1.9x works pretty nicley with the fz5 though you can see ca and softness creeping in and it really gets out of control stacking another lens on. Fun though.
