    I took these handheld using the G5 with 12-35 @35mm, f7.1. These are all 100% post crops, I think the IQ is excellent, great detail and clarity, who says the 12-35 can't do close ups!! lol

    Comments welcome.

    Very nice considering those are tight crops. The 12-35's close focusing abilities is a major plus. I never really paid much attention to minimum focus distance until that lens, but now that I've had it for a while I really appreciate it as it adds a lot of flexibility for shots like these :2thumbs:

    Great shots !!!! Did you take close-up shots straight from Panny-X 12-35 or use Oly MCON-P01 macro converter ?

    Nice close-ups. I think your bee is a hoverfly though :smile:

    Just using the 12-35 @35mm, these are 100% post crops though.

    Here's one before post cropping.

    Very nice Paul. The 12-35 does do nice close ups. Like Jay said above, the minimum focus distance is quite nice on this lens. You can actually obtain a pretty shallow DOF using the long end and minimum focus, so wise choice on the aperture setting here.
