All top notch images, Donald. Well done indeed. As Walter mentioned, you do have the eyes and great technique to photograph flowers. The NEX is a very capable camera (this is probably the largest image sample I've seem from it) to say the least. I do have a question...how easy is it to MF (in other words, how clear is the LCD and how is the implementation of MF assist)? Also, some of the pictures you took of the NEX with those old lenses mounted on it makes it look an awkward (unbalanced) ensemble. How comfortable is it to hand hold the camera with those large lenses?

Focussing is very easy - great display with 7x or 14x magnifying (one button to push). Balancing with long lenses is okay - for tele of course it's good to use a tripod.
