Dear Anavy, they are all beautiful, but the last two swallows, are a masterpiece!

Congratulation..

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...

Thanks Sherman!
I dont notice any wobble......yet. But I fear if I keep using the TC on the extended lens, it will only hurt the lens, in time.
I do hve an adapter for the FZ200, and can mount the TC onto that.
Seems I recall some users shortening the back end of the TC , to gain sharpness, getting it closer to the FZ200 lens ?
Thanks.

I've shortened the E15ED - I don't think it makes any difference in sharpness, but it should reduce vignetting.

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

Thanks Jack!

I agree. These are not as sharp as I'd like. Could be the atmosphere , at longer zoom range, but I also used similar settings as with the FZ200 (-2 for sharpness, contrast, NR in photo style NATURAL).

Then edited in FastStone.

Seems to work better with the FZ200.

The first one is a great bird catch. The image of the bird is good too!  Great work with the 70 as always. Thanks.
