I like late afternoon when the shadows are longer and light is not so harsh. Also can see the display better in manual focus mode with focus magnification. Got these pictures recently: http://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/51622494
sun and clouds. Tiny fly on a tiny flower at 1500m altitude. Can anybody answer the question: is this a female that lays an egg or just sh.. ?
The Raynox lens is great on my RX100. No problems in good light. Use fix focus (manual focus mode) an move the camera to focus.
