Advice please - could you recommend the best lens to get
May 21, 2011

something like this shot:

(not my photo, unfortunately - it's borrowed from the UK Butterflies website. [however the shot was taken in Switzerland!]. The photo was taken with a "3 megapixel Canon compact")

I'd like to take something similar with my Oly DSLR gear. I went out with my 11-22 yesterday, expecting that the extreme wide angle focal length would be the way to go. However, I couldn't get close enough, with the minimum focusing distance on that lens being 28cm. The butterflies came out too small.

Do you think I'd be better off with my 14-54 (I)?

Thanks

Chris
