Saw a post here recently where the FE Zoom was used to do some macro type shots. Thought I would try one.
Around 17mm I believe.

Wow, that second shot is great! The fisheye effect is practically invisible

Hi Walt,
That was me with the 10-17mm macro shots...and your are great. The second one is very nice. It's amazing how close you can get with it, and when you are very close @17mm,for some weird reason I could not explain, the fisheye effect nearly disappears.

Yes Scott, it really does make a neat "near macro" lens for some interesting perspectives. I love this lens more every day!
