I'm a writer.

I understand the difference between texting, email, Op-eds for small town papers, and university press manuscripts.

You, sir, do not seem to understand the difference between casual play with a camera, which can be fun, and serious macro work, which I imagine can also be.

You have not hurt my feelings at all. You simply seem to have difficulty getting outside your own head. I never intended to demonstrate how good the macro capabilities of the Oly 60 lens were (I leave that to persons like you); I simply wanted to show how close the lens could focus, which I did.

It was fun, which is more than I can say for this tiresome display of your macro capacities and knowledge. If you want to help make my case about the lens' flexibility by showing your fine macro work, I welcome it, Frank.  But this forum needs fewer crusaders who stir up conflict where it contributes nothing.

I had nothing at stake in the eye photo.  Consider it a quick "text" if that metaphor works for you.
