Not bad for the first attempt, but keep trying I'm shure it can be sharper withbest DOF for that angle

I agree, it could be sharper. Try using Aperature priority f8 and either spot or 1 area focusing.

Looks like your on the right track. Looks better than some I shot today of butterflies that wouldn't sit still. You definitly have the right idea of starting with static objects first until you get used to focusing with the add on lens. Good luck. Jim

Thanks to all for reply.



I used camera "macro" mode, instead of "Aperture" priority. As far as the above image the aperture is 2.8, thats why the image is not much sharp.

Which mode is good for the macro shots?

Yes you were shooting wide open but the focus across the center of the coin is not that bad. It is important in macro work with the shallow depth of focus to be at a 90-degree angle to your subject. The angle contributed to the coin having softer focus in the front and back.

As far as I see, the problem is also that there's micro-moved owing to the low shut.speed and no flash used although the exif data have not been preserved in the jpg file.
