    These are a few of the shots I took at Mercer Arboretum last Saturday morning. The weather was overcast and it had been raining when we arrived. All shots were taken with my D200 and 60mm 2.8 Micro except for the last shot. Exif data is viewable with Opanda.

    NIKON D200    ---    60mm    f/3.2    1/250s    ISO 200

    NIKON D200    ---    60mm    f/2.8    1/160s    ISO 200

    NIKON D200    ---    60mm    f/3.2    1/250s    ISO 200

    NIKON D200    ---    60mm    f/2.8    1/125s    ISO 200

    NIKON D200    ---    60mm    f/2.8    1/90s    ISO 200

    NIKON D200    ---    60mm    f/2.8    1/125s    ISO 200

    NIKON D200    ---    60mm    f/3.2    1/500s    ISO 200

    This last one was taken with my 28-105 f3.5-4.5 at 55mm.

    Thanks to both of you

    Since you mentioned the 2nd to last, it and the last were taken within a minute of each other, but with different lenses. The difference isn't as apparent after photobucket re-sized them, but the 60mm you like was much lighter than the one taken with the 28-105mm, and a friend took the same shot using his KM 7D right after my two , and it looks more like my 60mm. The only thing I can attribute the difference to is the lens.???
  5. To me the 2nd to last looks a bit "whiter" on the leaves, and the bokeh is also much nicer. Too much in focus in the last one. Both very nice though :smile:
