Made with K-5 and 100mm WR Macro this morning. Still new to macro. How many use a flash for macro?

Thanks Smeggy, Steve, etc. I enjoyed how hard it was - struggling with the manual focus lens as the dancers moved deep and shallow on stage, with the lighting constantly rotating colors and intensities up and down. I was amazed I got anything at all. The leap shot was one of 3 frames in continuous mode, but there was still some luck involved on that one. Live-view was mandatory to do the shots.

The dance studio had a videographer there shooting and selling dvds for $35, and they had the nerve to demand that no one shoot video from the audience - obviously so that their video guy would have a monopoly. But I did sneakily shoot video with the K-5 in 1920x1080x25 mode, with mostly good results. Exposure control was a bit marginal in some spots as the lighting changed, but not the camera's fault. I did have to park the WB on 'tungsten' to keep it stable though.
