Re: Birds and Flower shots with FZ

Another excellent series of photographs ANAYV. I think I like the Robin the best, but there is not much separating them. All have a lot of fine detail, which is especially good, as you are using a TC and they can "soften" things a liitle.

Good set ANAYV, you're getting great IQ and bangs per buck from that FZ70.

Thanks Carol !

I took quite a few shots of that same flower, in slightly different angles....knew it was going to be a good shot, when I saw it.

Usually I don't know, until I get home to view them.

Beautiful set, ANAYV.. flower is lovely and birds are splendid, really like the first shot where the little birdie is showing off with captured meal, excellent detail - methinks she is having a wasp for a brunch, .. well done and presented, thank you for sharing.

Stay well,

Thanks Rodger!

I was afraid the TC would render everything soft, as my past experience using the Oly TCON 1.7 TC.

I tried that on a few different FZ's some years ago, and images were too soft.

Tried two, over the years, and also another type Oly 2x TC, more recently , on my FZ200.

This is first time I an liking the results!

Re: Birds and Flower shots with FZ

Excellent, and nicely sharp. The Nikons certainly show their strength here.  My only concern is that I can see my FZ70 lens flex at full extension when the E15ED is mounted (more precisely, I can remove the weight of the teleconverter with my finger and the lens moves up).  The camera's certainly easier to handle without the extension tube, but...

good set ANAYV I liked the pose in #3 although it didn't seem to be critically sharp on my monitor.

Pretty cool if that's a wasp in the Robin's mouth!
