Very nice, I like it! Interesting combination of camera and lens, too! The photo could be a little brighter, but I understand you have to watch out for the highlights. I nominate this photo

I second that nomination.
This image simply delights~
Every technical reason says it won't work & every artistic reason
says too much green but it works beautifully & it is also extremely
calming...like they are floating at the bottom of the sea.....
I love it & I love that your "eye/mind" saw it & got the shot~!

Sorry for the bump, but I have this lens with a GX10. Mine has the builtin tripod mounts (2 at 90' to each other). The use of macro tubes is to gain clearance from the flash housing overhang. The lens has such a large diameter that mounting isn't possible with the infinity type flush mounts. Not a problem with K3.

I have removed the M42 mount that came with the lens (held by 3 grub screws). In its place I have attached a T-Mount to Pentax K. Early days for testing but a nice fit.

Back to your photo.
