want your opinions and if you could, offer some advice on how to beef up the b/w conversion.

And yes, I know how some of you feel about flower photos, but for now, these are what I use to practice my lagging skills on.

Thanks Bokehboy for the suggestions and comments. I don't use digital at all. Well, except for my p/h nikon which is in the drawer now I have these other two cameras......

I'm going out in the morning early and see what I can do with this zoom lens.

One other question since I have your attention. What speed film would work best for this. This last roll was 400. I have some ASA100 and some ASA200, also.

I know with the K10D that lens tends to be a bit slow, little on the dark side. I usually shoot with ASA 400, 1/250 and F4 or F5.6. I drop the shutter speed down in low light until I get the satisfactory looking shot. Personally for film I wouldn't go any slower than 400 speed for this lens in Macro. I think it maybe just too dark for 200 or slower film and they would definitely require a tripod.

Ok, I'll stick with the 400 for now. I shot this handheld. First one I've got that wasn't out of focus or blurred because of camera shake. Course the 50mm didn't make the camera so heavy either. I'll use a tripod with the zoom lens though.

Always a good idea for stability.

I haven't shot film in goodness knows how long, but used 400 for versatility. However, if you want ultimate clarity and know you'll have the light or a tripod, why not use 100 ASA?

In daylight,lots of sun, 400 can be a bit grainy, IMO. That's why I was thinking to use 100 ASA instead.
