I was playing with my canary and took a shot with my FZ1v2. Whenever I show pics like this to my friends they think that I must have a 10 megapixel dSLR. Yeah, right...:roll:

Very, very nice! The fz1 nailed that yellow big time! Excellent. What was the light source?

Yes, I agree. That's why I thought it was worth posting, the light source was just indirect sunlight from an open window at about 4:00 PM. I am vey happy with the Minolta lenses as well, I got both the No.1 (~+2.9) and No.2 (+3.9) for about 50 bucks. Just as somebody else explained in another post, your pics motivated me to get in the macro stuff, so thanks! :|

According to the exif (using Opanda 1.8) this is at about 8x zoom so I quess you were using the No.1. Excellent lens for an excellent price! Nice going. Thanks much for the compliment. It's wonderful to see results like this!

Gee Fred! You know your stuff! Yes, I was indeed using the No.1. The other one is probably better for insects and the kind.

Thanks for the replies! No wonder the Panasonic forum is the winner in posts in relation to other forums. You not only learn about equipment and technical aspects of photography here, but you also learn about composition and even post processing. Thanks to all of you for making a great community of photography lovers.

I have another one, but there is a weird optical phenomena on the canary's head. I don't think is CA. I was at 12X (420mm in 35mm equivalent) using the same lens. Does anybody know what is that?
