What's the lens? Never seen such resolution from a M43.

It's a 45-200 Panasonic lens and I just took the Panasonic LC55 Close Up lens that is designed for the FZ series cameras and attached it to the filter thread with a 62mm to 55mm Step Down Adapter...it works awesome....

Awesome shots, LTZ! I must go back out to practice, but I think the weather is turning on me again...

sdcs - you should see what he can do with his FZ (P&S)!!

I see. The color character looked like from 45-200 but it cannot do that kind of macro.

Yes I saw his LZ too, making me want a Kodak Z950 or Nikon S8100. I mean a P&S with 10x zoom but not as bulky as the LZ.

Thanks for the info. What's the diopter of the LC55? I couldn't find that detail. I have a +3 diopter achromatic close-up lens that I don't have within reach at the moment. I've used with good results with the Panny 14-140, but haven't tried it with the Panny 100-300 yet.

The LC55 is a +2 diopter, sold for the FZ series to use with an extension tube, but works well with other lenses as you see here.
