    I am still amazed by my NEX 7 after almost two years of use. I love macro photography and this little camera is perfectly suited to the task. Here is a smattering of some of the macro shots I have done with the camera in that time using a variety of old manual focus macro lenses and regular lenses with old close up filters.

    Cool stuff, especially 'Gloria insecta' - reminds me of the old 'super insect monster movie' era - Moth-ra and all that stuff :)

    Thank you everyone who replied! And so very sorry for the late response. Real life just has a way of intruding on so much. Quite rude when you think about it actually. :)

    markoneswift- Its funny you should say that, but that shot has always reminded me of that as well. Im sure the little guy would be proud to be compared to Mothra. :)

    ChanqshaNotes- Thanks as well. "Stalking in the mist" is one of my absolute favorite shots ever. I used an old 1959 aluminum bodied Zeiss Biotar (M42) and that shot is straight out of the camera. Even though it exhibits what I believe to be nisen bokeh its still one I am proud to have taken.

    Thanks again everyone.
