My first Frog photo with X-E1 and 18-55mm (1 pic)
3 months ago

Some might know me from the Pentax SLR talk forum for my Frog photos. So this morning on my way to work i only brought with me my X-E1 and 18-55mm. My goal was to photograph a Frog with the "kit lens".  The minimum focusing distance is too long for close-up of Frogs, my FOTGA extension tubes that i ordered don't work very well (not recommended, they are too thight and may get stuck on the camera or lens).

So until i can find safe Ext. tubes to use i will have to do with the bare kit lens. I was handholding it at water level at harmslength, so OIS was useful. The IQ is very goodt 55mm at f/8, i tried f/11 but too much DOF.

Hope you like it, no cropping BTW.
