40-150 zoom for macro zoom images
Apr 15, 2014

Would you please comment on how well or poorly the 40-150 zoom works for taking closeups of flowers from a few feet away?  Often zooms do an excellent job of "macro" style photography using the maximum zoom.

For example, my Panasonic FZ150 did a very good job of this technique.  If the 40-150 could do the same or better, that would satisfy my desire to shoot close ups of flowers without a dedicated lens.

Thanks for your comments and examples,


P.S.  Examples of what my FZ150 can do.
