    Wanted to try out the close focusing abilities with the Tokina Reflex/Mirror 300mm lens and shot a few pictures in the yard........with the G7 and no IS, this is super hard- used a lightweight tripod but would get better results with a camera with IS.
    Not the best macro lens as it lacks a bit of contrast and sharpness but it's a cool novelty lens and worth the $139 it's currently selling for.
    (Will try this again but with birds/animals as normal distances) P1000375.jpg P1000380.jpg P1000394.jpg P1000434.jpg

    I'm looking at these on my iPhone, but they look really great. Dragon flies have been scarce and difficult for me. Nice work.
