    Some close-ups with the Panny 45-200. I am really starting to love this lens.

    All processed in LightZone which I start to discover. Switched over to Linux as my main OS and LZ could become my new Raw converter.
    For now the first impressions are good/hopeful.:smile:

    I like #1 best.... But, all are great images
    The colors are great, and the Bokeh is wonderful in all the images
    #1 has the best composition and snappiness.
    #2 has a little brighter look, but really shows the flowers nicely.
    #3 has a softer feel, as the bee does it's thing.

    Impressive stuff and encouragement for me to get my 45-200 out and try it again as a quasi macro lens. I do like the one with the bee, although it is a little soft.

    How are you getting on with LightZone. As a Mac user I mostly use Aperture, but LightZone is my alternative. Sometimes I get lucky with it, sometimes not.

    I am just getting used to it. I come from LR (which is good) on a Win 7 machine. I already had LightZone and Bibble 5 Pro. Both of them multi platform and usable on Linux. Somehow I like the way LightZone renders the colours a bit more then Bibbles output. For now I stick to LZN, and see how it copes.

    Thanks everyone for the nice and encouraging comments.:smile:

    Very nice, especially the first one. Makes me wonder why I want to sell this lens, maybe I should keep it...

    Nice images and Bokeh.
    It is a good lens and food for closeup I have used it with the Nikon 3T/4t for extra magnification and its near macro quality
