    You got a 35mm macro? Nice! as you can see it is a great lens. It's spring here too, you can tell because it is alternating rain, sleet, and snow for the next three months, instead of alternating sun and snow.

    Yes raven it was your recommendation that swung it so I had a shot at one on ebay and won it at almost half new price. When it arrived it looked unused and in mint condition with a UV filter attached. As you probably guessed I was pretty pleased and from what I've seen so far it works pretty darn well. These little leaves were fairly small at about 2cm long so that shot is quite an enlargement. Haven't quite got the hang of the ratios yet it seems to pick its own macro setting as it focusses depending on how far the lens is from the subject. To get to 1:1 subjects are very close to the glass. Have I got this right? Also on the E510 I can turn the focus ring and change the macro ratio manually but on the E620 turning the focus ring does nothing - have I got a setting wrong somewhere?

    - the fun's in finding them

    Yup, it has to be about on top of whatever you are shooting to get 1:1 macro. I have to admit I haven't used the macro that much, it has been more focal length fill for me, but still a great lens.

    Probably you need to set autofocus to [S-AF + MF] or [MF] on the control panel of the E-620.

    Congratulations on the great price!

    Dogwoods

    The cherry trees are quickly fading here in Atlanta. The first dogwoods are popping open. It has been a little too windy to be able to actually compose a shot for more than a second or two.

    Nice shot. What lens, 50mm macro?

    Two from Inner Mongolia, should have been posted months ago. The top one has a split ND across the top, the two little goats acted just like puppies. In fact, the camel was pretty friendly too, a trait typical of Mongolian animals I guess.

    Thanks raven [S-AF + MF] did the trick. Works fine now.
    Cute goats.

    Raven,

    Like those white goats.

    The dogwood was actually with the 70-300. A lot of the flowering trees are too tall to get close to at a good angle.

    more conventional (maybe the looser crop was better?)

    It's a good thing there was ice on the puddle or that 35mm macro would have been swimming.

    Raven,

    Considering the stories about your previous cameras and lenses maybe you should get a better bag instead of that tripod I like the glass like quality of the water in that second shot. The composition works in a weird way too.
