EM5 + Oly 70-300 + Nikkor 105 Macro = some nice flowers

I was really pleased with this set of about 40 flower images taken the other weekend. I find outdoors the viewfinders (both EVF and Display) to be a lot sharper than my GH2. I used the old Oly 70-300 which is my favorite for flowers and butterflies due to its excellent closeup capabilty, then I did another round using an old MF Nikkor 105mm. Boy do I wish there were a m43 macro with 100mm focal length (200mm-e)!!

These are all hand held without IS. I try to maintain 1/focal length shutter speed by raising ISO if I have to. (Actually, I use AutoISO and Aperaturepriority)

Here's the link to the 40images:


If you don't have time to look, here are several of my favorites from that day:
