    Nice start with the new glass Frank, I have been waiting patiently for the British weather to improve so I can get out and shoot with my 55mm micro.

    Granted it's a bit of a struggle without metering and with the D50's small finder however initial tests have been promising and I can't wait to put it to good use.

    Very nice shots. The last shot is my favorite of the group. Did I understand that you did not use a tripod? If so, you have a rock steady grip.
