Hi all, thought I'd better introduce myself as I have had a lot of brilliant feedback from everyone over the past few days. I bought my Olympus E-420 last November and then my 35mm macro. I now spend a lot of my time bent over, crawling or lying on the ground. Still very much a learner and even though I'm an oldie, have found a passion which is exhilarating.

Cheers

The first thing to go with macro is your dignity! The second thing is your back! Very Happy
