Magnificent images ! You seem to have "solid hands" ... you must not be a drunkard. When I handhold my 645Z with a MACRO lens, I sweat like a pig, trying to find the right focus and staying absolutely still.

Receive my Best Regards
thank you, Richard...

thank you...

I'm particularly pleased with that one - the spider is smaller than my thumbnail...

A new arrival, Vivitar 135mm f2.8 Close Focusing + K-5iis, shot at f2.8. I thought I was done acquiring lenses but Pepperberry Farms is a bad influence.

nice work with the Vivitar.....

I'm not sure I have ever been a 'good' influence where LBA is concerned....

I recently purchased this macro lens (645 120/4) and it is heavy, ponderous, etc.....

but shots like this make it worth it...

Thank you. I had my eyes out for this lens for some time. I finally decided to post a 'wanted' notice in the pf marketplace and received a response within days. The Vivitar is only 1:2 macro but that's fine with me. It adds to my collection of eclectic lenses.

What do you do when you thought you had the 31 mounted but it really was the 77?
