The Macro Club

I just bought a macro lens - 100mm f4 (manual focus) - from a fellow forum member (GregK8)

These are all photos taken in my garden

K5 only? Since you posted this in the K5 forum.. I'll have to wait a week or so.

Nice shots. Perhaps posting here would reduce duplication.

If you have a favourite existing shot, by all means post it - but make sure you post an equivalent once you get your K-5 back from CRIS.

This one's K-5 specific - any lens will do, even none macro ones, as long as the shot can be perceived as a macro shot.

Maybe we need another subforum for all the k5 specific lens clubs.

why exactly would the K-5 get a specific macro club? Doesn't make much sense to me

Because somebody wanted to start one. Makes perfect sense to me.

I thought your K-5 had no FF issues?

You don't need AF confirmation with macro shots. Simply use zoomed LV and manual focus

Problem? What's the problem with the several other macro groups? Problem?

You're the one complaining about it. We also have 100s of which lens, which camera, how do I take x type of photo, Camera makes noise when I shake it, etc threads. So what?



:brother:

Nice shot Joseph.
