Lukas, thanks a bunch. It's nice to discover what you can get from a cheap lens.
Skupking, nice pictures showing the great minimum focus distance of the D40 kit lens.
If you're interested in getting closer for cheap, you might try the Canon 500D close-up macro filter: http://www.adorama.com/CA52CU250D.ht...lter&item_no=1
Here's one of my efforts from today with the 55-200mm VR:

Cool images Nikonians. Like flowers, like sea beach, like evening sun on the rocks :cool:
Rooz, Sam, your birds are just awesome, wish we had some of them in Alps. Unfortunately all I can capture is a couple of pigeons sh*tting on my terrace every morning, I am nearly to kill them. :mad:
Rooz, great shot. Very nice composition.
swpars nice shot with the 55-200 and I like how that shot came out of the flower Rooz. Ok time for some more, this time with the 55-200 vr. Took these last week in Cape code. Some nice fogy days but I think it adds to the pictures.
cool shot Rooz, something different!
Another picture of my vacation. This is the view from the ghost town of Tiermas:
great image prospero, hard to believe it is a ghost town.
