Get too close to a reflecting surface and you end up seeing yourself:

Re: Samyang 7.5mm F3.5 Fish-eye

It's a cracking lens and it works fine on the E-M1. Fisheye perspectives can be very creative. Body parts in-shot aren't really an issue unless you point the camera down.

I like the leopard shot. Having the forepaw in the frame rather than concentrating on the face makes it a winning shot for me.

Re: Birds in flight & Leopard from the Zoo

BIF shots are never easy; the background of trees does nothing for them - too dark.
The leopard shot is nice, a bit different. Even with that, though, the background is a bit dark and mottled, and...

Re: Birds in flight & Leopard from the Zoo

I like the bird shots but they could be a bit sharper, I just wonder if you should have used a faster shutter speed? Always easy to be wise after the event but the ISO could have been put up a stop...

Re: Extension tubes or front of lens macro adaptor

If you have a couple of lenses with similar sized filter threads a very cheap alternative is a M/M coupling ring to reverse one lens onto the front of another. I have several OM Zuiko lenses that use...

Re: Extension tubes or front of lens macro adaptor

The Raynox MCR250 is a good option

Here is a shot taken with a 4/3 40-150 MK1 lens with a minimum focus distance of 1.4m.

I have some Kenko rings that allows normal control of the lens by the camera. The only down side is the loss of infinity focusing. However for most macro that's not an issue as you rarely shoot Macro...

Re: Extension tubes or front of lens macro adaptor

Another consideration would be to purchase a reversing ring and connect one of your lenses to the front of another lens the magnification is very high.

Here is video clip that might inspire you....
