    On another forum not related to photography I started a series of "What is This" for folks to identify. It has become popular with many folks there. The first pic would be a very close shot & then after some guessing another shot backed off & then another until the subject was identified. Here are some of the "first shots" taken with an old Minolta "mc" mount 55mm/1.7 plus extension tubes on my Panasonic G1.


    1. frosted corn flake

    2. a peppercorn

    3. aluminum shavings off a drill bit

    4. steel dust on a magnet

    [​IMG]


    5. a rat tail file

    All the above were identified, some even on the first pic.

    It really is a shame that the "other forum" is down more lately than it's up. They need some serious help over there lately. :confused:

    It was not my intention to start a contest here but to show the use of an old legacy lens on a modern micro four thirds (m4/3) camera.
