Macro - Olympus E-300+EX-25+FL-R36

Hi! Some months ago I asked you guys it the EX-25 was a good buy, and after thinking for a while I decided to grab one for sale - 50 euros, which I think it's a good price.

I thought the 40-150mm one combination would be better suited to macro photography, but surprisingly my best results are with the 14-45mm (it does give bigger amplification...).

Here are two examples, both with the 14-45 lens and the above combination.

These flies are quite small, I think they're drosophila melanogaster, but I'm not sure...nevertheless, I could stand up really close and get a good deal of magnification.

ISO 100, 1/250 sec., F/10, 34mm (68 equiv.) Slight crop

This is a small "flower", if I can call it that, but to these flies it was their central park!

ISO 100, 1/250 sec., F/10, 30mm (60 equiv.) Slight crop
