Panasonic G1 with 45-200mm:
I'm not 100% thrilled with these and will retake them as soon as the weather and bees cooperate. But...
p.s. Glenn, I really like yours - especially the 3rd one.
Bees, where would we be without them? Lovely closeups of those hardworking little beings. Sorry for the play on words.
Perhaps it is because I share my name with them, a bit?
Stunning for that lens. I can see the bee's knees.
With my Ricoh GX 200
That's not fair. You're just showing off.
No, but this is exactly why I love the Ricoh still. I am struggling with the fact that both in 4/3 and with my Nikon D90 I can't get the same macro photographs (unless I buy a very expensive macro lens for the D90), because the lenses can't focus this close.
The downside of course is the very small sensor, so with some photographs the quality loss is really there, compared to 4/3 or D90.
Edit: and when you get to 1 cm focus distance you will have to look for bees that are sitting still of course. The bumblebees do this on hot afternoons (too much honey probably...).
