    he was on my front landing when i got home...after being "eeewh" about it (after all I am a girl), my immediate thought was to go get the camera and attach the macro lens. it's my first real macro test on my brand new e mount 30mm macro lens. :biggrin:

    Cool shots. I used to have a giant african land snail as a pet - he was pretty fun to watch - surprisingly!

    Very nice series! Who says NEX cameras cannot be used for action shots? Apparently autofocus could keep up well with this moving subject.

    Agree! Was it shot wide open? Some PP applied?
    #1 is my favourite - Subject is so sharp!!!

    Great shots! Great use of macro.
    Just curious, how close did you have to get with the 30mm macro lens?

    Thank you all! Was about an inch at the closest and maybe 4 inches give or take for others. Some minor PP applied...colour adjustments mostly. The lens did very well on it's own :)
