    I like the composition of the first one best, but the butterfly is better in the second. I might have to go chase some bugs this weekend...

    I agree kg I like the composition of no 1 better too. The head is the only bit in focus on it and unfortunately it doesn't stand out enough from the shadows to be the focal point it should be. Here's another angle shot of no2 cropped and rotated.

    The 50-200 can be quite sharp and still delivers some nice bokeh.

    That is some pretty nice bokeh there. I'll post pictures sooner or later...

    Is that bokeh part of the benefit of the SWD version having the rounded aperture blades?

    Rounded blades are usually a contibutor to pleasing bokeh. However, I have not compared the SWD to non-SWD 50-200.

    I found myself playing with the dramatic light filter a lot on our Alaska trip. I think it worked pretty well on this shot in Kennicott. I like how the manager's office stands out. Makes me think that the ability Olympus has added in the new m4/3rds cameras to adjust the effects might be worthwhile.

    Yes that dramatic effect works quite well. Mind you it looks like it was a pretty dramatic shot anyway.

    The blur works well in the first one. Great colors too.
