I actually know very little about macro photography. Irix has a Pentax K mount, but i went with the canon mount due to Fotga has a $23 dumb adapter for canon to M43, but not Pentax, that has built in aperture blades that allows for stopping down. Otherwise, the lens aperture system is controlled by the camera electronically.

Regarding handheld the Oly stabalization is second to none.

My Father's Day request was to be able to take portrait photographs of my daughter, Alexis. I got to play with my camera equipment, prove that dad can use a camera for more than just birds in flight photography, and provide her some professional looking pics to help her pursue a modeling career.

Very difficult bird to cqpture in flight - its skiddish. Cardinals are the hardest - very very untrusting.

However, I have a couple more captures as we text of the red wing blackbird. Will post today.

I had the camera in Sv mode - I set ISO and camera auto sets shutter speed. The lightning became brighter from when I first set the ISO. Because of that, this shot was taken at 1/3200 shutter speed and I only needed 1/1600 shutter speed which wouldve reduced my ISO to approximately 2500 = less noise. The blackbird is so dark it absorbs alot of light, resulting in the degradation of the image when pushing dynamic range in post.

In short, I missed an opportunity at a better image because of setting the camera as mentioned.
