    Top 'O the Mornin' to you, my friend! I thought I'd take the time to commend you on your recent photos. Your sharpness and saturation is superb. What I find amazing is that you're doing it with several DIFFERENT cameras and lenses! That goes to show it's not the equipment, but the man who's using it that makes or breaks the final results. Bravo, sir. Keep up the good work. I look forward to the PF every morning to see what you've posted.

    Happy Easter,

    Hey Tony.... you might want to take a look at the Pentax-FA 50mm f:2.8 macro lens I've got listed on the Market Place. It has the highest sharpness rating possible with a perfect 10! It's the sharpest lens I've ever used! Sadly, I can't bend over like I did when I was younger, so I'm selling it. I have a FA 100mm f:2.8 that works better for me, with it's longer minimum focusing distance. You being the "Flower Shooter," you NEED a 1:1 macro that's the sharpest lens Pentax ever made!

    Just thought I'd mention it. I've got it prices ridiculously low!

    Make it a great weekend,

    I'm glad to see you're getting the hand of the 100mm lens. I've noticed a remarkable improvement in your flower photos! Bravo! I think a lot of it has to do with NOT using a flash. It always had tended to wash out the modeling when I use it. Mine always seem to look better with the dramatic lighting, especially if the background is rather dark, giving the flowers their own time "in the sun." I'm going to put my Pentax-FA 50mm f:2.8 Macro 1:1 lens on The Market Place tomorrow, just in case you're interested. Among those in the know, it's one of, if not THE best 1:1 macro on earth! It's loaded with Pixie Dust! It's the lens I used for the "Inner Sanctum" photo I posted on the forum.
    Just thought you might be interested. I'm asking $190 plus shipping.

    Oh. it's just a matter of getting old. I'm almost 73 and things are falling apart! With heart problems, TII diabetes, severe rheumatoid arthritis and degenerated hip and back, it sucks!
    Other than that, I'm fit as a fiddle!

    Yes, buddy, and ideally use the 2s delay and LiveView when you use the tripod - that'll help your pictures be sharper by getting rid of shutter and mirror shocks. Your style, like landscapes, relies on lots of detail, so you want to ditch handheld shooting as much as you can. I'm always posting pics somewhere, most recently at $$$$$ony A7iii - Page 2 -

    Take care Tony,

    Hi Tony - i'm looking at your post about the slow write/view speed. My suspicion is that there might be an issue with the SD card you are using, i might suggest investing in a new/faster card if possible.

    Just realized that I have the k-5 outfitted with a pristine katz eye plus split prism focusing screen. for some extra $$ i'll just leave it on the cam, otherwise i'll take it out and put the original pentax screen in it

    Hi Tony - message me - slight change possible

    Tony, just a thought here. You're posting some very nice macro stuff on the Social Groups - Macro' site but you'd get more 'exposure' using the *Macro* lens club

    The stated goal for the Social Groups is ideally oriented toward discussion rather than album display - "...the place to share your ideas and techniques on macro photography, to ask questions, and to start discussions on this topic. "

    Also, you'd also find it easier and less 'cluttered' to add multiple images to an existing thread or adding new images via a reply to an existing thread.

    Keep shootin' and showin'.
