Re: Need V1 tips for nature photography and macro

Lovely dragonflies!

My favourite lens for macros is the big, and heavy-ish, 70-300 VR, occasionally with a Canon closeup lens on (Canon 250D, or Canon 500D). I've tried the same kind of lens on the 10, which works superb. I've also tried the add-ons the manual zooms (10-30 & 30-110), but that is slightly abusing them, as the add-ons are a bit heavy. But the results is still more than OK.

A few examples from May 15th (Street, UK) with the 70-300 and one with the 30-110. Most taken using the close-up, add-on, Canon 500D lens, size 58mm (with the help of a step-down ring), respectively size 52mm (on the 30-110, with two step-up rings).

These were taken with the AF-S 70-300 VR:

And this one the 30-110:

None of them perfect, but I am a late learner!
