Nice work, LTZ. I've been trying to also use the LC55 with my 70-300mm and having a real difficult time with the DOF. Can't seem to focus on my subject. I will keep trying..

Your shots definitely have wider DOF - what ISO and f-stop are you using? Auto or manual focus?

I posted this earlier, but this one was ISO 200 and f5.6. As you can see, it's not focused on the center flower, but things just beyond. Most of my closeup shots have been looking like this... I'm quite perplexed.

Saly I was up to f/11 and still needing more on the Dandelion Puff Balls (Seed Heads) probably will take f/16 to capture the depth of the dandelion seed heads, I was trying to maintain an excellent bokeh as well...

OK, good to know. I will bump up the f-stop next time. Thanks for the tip!

Hi LTZ,

great pics. I just bought a hackable GH1 for a very good price - because here in Germany the shops get filled with the GH2.

I already got a 62-55 mm step down ring to mount my LC55 (from my FZ35) onto the 14-140 pana lens.

Have you tried the LC55 on the 14-140?

No I haven't, but it should work great at 50mm as the 14-140 is very sharp in the center...post some Macros for us!
