    Handheld 70-180 micro and 1 SB800, nearly 100% crop.

  2. Wow! I didn't think the 70-180 could be handheld! You just made my day! Thank you so much for sharing this image, it's great! :biggrin:

    Hope it's OK for the rest of us to look. :biggrin:

    Very nice, especially for hand held. :smile:

    I thought you might be interested in this. After our conversation I decided to give handheld macro a try. There is very little sharpening applied.

    OK, I guess you can look too. :rolleyes:  :wink:

    Thanks. I have not tried bug shots handheld and I was pleased with what I came back with.

  6. I think it is easier to hand hold the longer zoom lenses on the larger D2 bodies because they are nicely balanced. I know that I tried to handhold the 70-180 on the D70 with lousy results. On the other hand, the 60mm micro was easy to handhold on the D70, but felt awkward on the D2H. Overall, it yielded wonderful results on both cameras. :biggrin:
  7. Charlie, that's a really nice image! Kudos for you! :smile:
