all I did to above was to resize and enhance in PE4. I know I still have a learning curve here with the lens, but at least I can see what I was aiming the lens at, unlike the Digital Optic 2x lens I had previously purchased.

I think you'll get some nice photos once you get the hang of working with that lens.

The pictures look a bit soft are you hand holding and what camera are you using.. There is only so much OIS can do and if you are up there in years like me that may be the reason.

Yes, I was handholding, and I didn't realize that my age showed also. LOL. I retired just over a year ago. Am now 63, hoping for at least that many more. I am using the FZ30 set on program mode.

I'm 65 and I would have to give up photography if it were not for OIS. I suggest two approaches to get better results. Buy a tripod it need not be expensive Take a look for Sunpakhttp://www.tocad.com/tripods/9001ut.htmldepending on where you shop $30-$50. If carrying an extra 3 pounds is not you cup of tea try to find an object to brace yourself and camera like a tree fence post etc. I carry a small bean bag I can put it on a flat surface place the camera down line up the shot set the timer exposure and its done.

Well, the fact that I seem to shake somewhat more than I used to is the main reason I went for the OIS. I love to take some nature shots and birds at my feeders. I do have a tripod already, but, often I don't have time to set up, as in the case of the squirrel. Now, one question. When you say that the photo is soft, can you explain exactly what you mean. And also, what settings do you use for nature shots like the squirrel and birds?

Thanks, any help and critique is appreciated.

Jerry.
