Is this as good as I will get?

I look in awe at the quality of some shots posted on here, I use an Olympus E400 have done now for about 4 years.

What I am concerned about is will the camera extract minute details.

For example, this Bee is what I would class as one of my better shots, but it is still lacking detail in the eyes and the hairs on the body.

These are taken using the Zuiko 70-300mm with an EC14 fitted on the Bee shot.

Is it my technique or is the camera too old I am using? These are taken hand held using the Nature Macro settings on the camera.
