    I just received my EP-1 today and tried it out in the backyard. I used a Voigtlander adapter and Nikon 60mm f2.8 micro. C&C please. This is definitely a tripod must use experience. The feeder was in deep shade and late afternoon.[​IMG] P8060695a1b.

    Here is an overall view of the location of my feeder. You'll see it hanging in the left quadrant under deep shade of the bouganvilla. Shutter speed was 1/40sec and apperture was set at 2.8. The camera and lens could not communicate with each other due to the adapter in between. It does seem like there was enough light available but such was not the case. P8060634a.

    nicely done! This is exactly the kind of setting that would completely mess with a p&s camera. I take it the tripod was to avoid movement so the focus could be fixed (since the ep-1's IS is good enough for 1\40)?
