Still perfecting my BIF (Bee in Flight) technique. Now it's camera on tripod, wireless flash in hand and watching for moving targets. I'm up to about 1 in 10 having an in-focus bee in flight. Still impressed with the 16-45 as an all-around inexpensive lens. I'm not sure if I want to even consider the 16-50 considering how good this lens performs.

Good catch. I couldn't even think of taking a shot of a flying insect, I struggle enough when they're simply walking!
