E-330 does Iris, Day Lilies, and a hummer.
2

In protest of today's impending snow (4 to 8 inches, 40+mph winds), I dug around and reprocessed some old garden shots.  All with the E-330 and 50-200, comments and criticism welcome as always, probably best viewed enlarged.

Iris, unknown old fashioned

Day Lily, Lemon Lily

Thanks Brad, I'd love to try one of those, but I don't think it'd survive the winters up here.

Re: E-330 does Iris, Day Lilies, and a hummer.

A nice, bright, colourful and WARM looking set Nate.  -12 C today, no snow yet but it did yesterday and suppose to get more tomorrow.  My wife can't wait for spring and summer.  I told her they were the two days last week when the temperatures broke zero!  She wasn't impressed!

We have a butterfly bush here that I planted years ago.  In our climate they say they should be treated as annuals.  Our is still alive but truthfully we would likely be better off to replant a new one yearly.

Those are all beautiful, Nate, but the sixth, the yellow and magenta iris is really something.  I must find one like it.  I took years of wonderful and satisfying pix with the E330, only the lack of IS and increasing decrepitude made me move on. Rich

Thanks Andrew, I never considered.....

....planting one as an annual.  I wonder if the summer would be long enough for it to get any size?

I hear you, Rich,

but truthfully, I'm beginning to wonder if IS is all its cracked up to be. Almost like it lulls us into a false sense of security, you know? As an experiment, I think I'm going to try turning it of in the E-M1 and play around a little, maybe reacquaint myself with my tripod and monopod.

PM me your address, and I'll try to send you some of the toes from that Iris!  Trouble is, I won't know which ones are which until they bloom, so it'd be next year before you'd have them growing for you.

Re: I hear you, Rich,

Nate, when I first got the E3, my first IS camera, I really experimented with the IS.  The advertising claims of three stops, were over rated, of course.  But, I did find it made a difference in hand held macro and bird in flight shots.  Now the EM-1 has five axis IS and I wonder about that, too.  Still, back to basics, tripod, mirror lock up and remote control are best when practical.  And, if you have a pack animal, a tripod with wooden legs is far superior.  Watch for P.M.  Rich
