    Thank you for the advice. The K-1 is like having two cameras in one body!

    Walter, I am getting excited, and hope we can definitely meet. Keep me posted and I'll plan to keep that time pretty free. Kruger sounds good, I am itching for a couple of days there. And I did update my gear on my profile.

    And you are an inspiration on the Forum. Me included.

    Stay well.

    My apologies for this late reply. The gear
    Tamron 70-300mm (usually the lens I use for the Macro shots)
    Sigma 70-300mm
    Sigma 28-80mm Macro lens,
    A Newer Screw on Wide Angle/Macro glass
    and lately the Raynox 150.
    The Karl Zeiss 28mm F/2.8 I occasionally use for macro stuff.. The glass from the Newer set works quite well. This is an example of that set up.

    Which image of the Ladybug? This one? If so, this was shot with the Tamron 70-300mm on Macro setting.

    Hey there WPRESTO! probably 2 years late here I really appreciated that you sent the eyepieces! They fit amazingly well! Never really got to get back to you! Thanks a lot! I hope you've been well !

    Thanks very much for the tip. Unfortunately, it did not work for me. I have more trouble navigating around this forum and it becomes very frustrating. I am of the mind to suspect that Google Chrome may not be 100% compatible with this forum. I hope you are feeling well and also that you enjoy your trip.

    Thanks for the kind words Walter! Real stoked to be a part of this rad photo enthusiast community!

    PS: Super jealous you got to experience the 60's in the Bay... Must have been a groovy time.

    Just had to say that I thoroughly enjoyed the tagline in your posts (the one about the frightening number of people...) I am completely with you there! When did my country lose its' mind?

    Bonjour Walt,

    Just wanted to say "Hi" and hope that all's well ... have not seen you on the boards for a while, thus a bit curious/concerned. As the French say ... "à bientôt", John
