It is a close up/macro head shot of a whatever it is... some sort of caterpillar? Here's a bigger picture view. If you want a DoF challenge, this certainly gave one.

Crop from under the red thingy?
And why didi you crop it btw? I like the big version better :)

EDIT:
This is lens gallery, so was it to show the quality at 100%?
Sorry :oops:

Yup, the crop was to show the potential. But most times I resize down a bit too, to help control the noise.

The big version is actually two different shots stitched together. The cropped one earlier is another shot again. Actually the red bit is some sort of tail, as the head is on the other end.

I like the 40-150mm because of it's small size. However, I haven't used it as much as my 70-300, so I really can't judge it fairly. I bought the 70-300mm because I wanted to photograph birds and the 40-150 won't get that far imho. The 40-150 is the perfect addition to the E-4x0, because of the missing image stabilizer. With the E-5x0 I would prefer the 70-300


I am considering to return my 70-300mm and get a much cheaper 40-150mm. But I really like the macro capabilit of 70-300mm.
Can you please tell me how 40-150mm works for macro shots? Thanks.

So, some more shots with the 70-300 I did today.

This lens really needs lots of light, but then image quality is great. It's still one of my favourite lenses, but on the other hand, every zuiko lens is my favourite lens :D

I hope you like them!

that's so great!
really like the butterfly
not only it's sharp, also the composit is great.
I think you must spend lot's of time capturing these two pictures

Thank you!

I really can't say I composed these images when shooting, because with insects, you usually don't have the time to spend much thought on how to shoot them. The result are many sucky pictures and some really good ones. The good ones, you crop the right way to make it seem like you composed something.

On the other hand, what am I talking? Of course I composed these shots cause I'm pro! :D

As to your question:

The 40-150mm is not made for macro work. You would need an additional lens like the raynox 250 to get decent results. I would prefer the 70-300 any day, even though it weights more.

This is my favourite lens so far. It is very versatile (going from 140 to 600 mm) and is great for macro work.



Excellent shots. Kind a wish i had a olympus dslr now :P
