Nice capture with a very versatile lens. Thanks for sharing.

You're welcome. I'm very pleased with it given the short experience so far. I would normally be shooting birds with my G9 and a long zoom but the S5 and 24-105 was sitting right there, so...

I don't know if you ever do macro, but I have found it to be a great lens for macro (even though it only does 1:2, and not 1:1 like a true macro). The fact that it has minimal focus breathing makes it real easy to stack several shots and blend them in photoshop.

It's not a smexy lens, but it sure is versatile. And the rendering is very nice.

I don't do real macros but try some closeups sometimes. As a matter of fact, the first thing I did when the 24-105 arrived last week was to take some close shots of what's left of the roses outside my door. I need to learn how to do focus bracketing on the S5; my efforts so far haven't been very good. These are just single shots. You're right, a nice versatile lens.
