This zuiko lens is one I go back to again and again, we had a bit of prolonged sunshine yesterday (very rare up here!) so remembering I had bought an adapter ring allowing the Raynox to fit I took it out to the botanic gardens in Glasgow to have a wee play with the combination.

I also took this with a helios 44 58mm with extension tubes and the raynox the sundew is tiny this time of year so I needed the boost!

First one stands out because it's such a stunning looking flower but the shot also looks super sharp!

Very nice photograph!

Thanks for sharing.

Edit: bokeh and colour rendition also top notch!

I agree the Raynox adapters are excellent pieces of glass, I have the 250 and love it.

Super photos, by the way. Very Happy

I've seen a lot of shots with the Raynox and they are impressive, it looks as though they got it right. And using a good lens must help as well. As does the photographer Wink
Very nice images.
