I think I'm finally getting more comfortable with the 6T. Your comments are appreciated.

Hiroshi, WOW!!! The colors are wonderful! I'm very excited, I just got my 4t and have been playing around with it. I am finding out that I need to be about a foot away......otherwise when I try to focus all it does is hunt. I'll get the hang of it. I'm getting more and more used to my camera everday. I enjoy so much your photos and these are really beautiful.Looks like you are having fun with your new lens. Thanks for sharing. bentleysmom

Thank you for commenting and your kind encouraging words. It's taken me a little while to figure out the sweet spot on the 6T which is the same as your 4T in magnification. I agree with you that 1 foot is about it. The best result I've found for the extreme close ups is to zoom the camera to 12X and then move the camera back and fourth until I achieve sharp focus. I know thats probably a dumb way to do it, but it work for me most of the time.

P.S. I was blown away by your dragonfly pics. Did you use the 4T on them?

Hiroshi,

These are gorgeous pictures!!! Love #2 especially. You have captured the colors nicely and DOF is perfect. Keep posting these closeups so I can convince myself to drop the $$ for it.:-)

Looks like you've got the hang of it, nice ones. Is it just me or does a close-up of the center of a flower make anyone else think of candy?

One hint is to experiment with the different focusing modes. For me, I found that spot focusing and center focusing work the best. I also found that in difficult lighting conditions, the manual setting can be a great help. It's amazing how changing the F stop and speed can help in controlling the exposure. It just goes to prove that OUR brain IS better than that little micro-chip in the camera:lol:.
