    so i finally got a sony a-300 after waiting a long time and saving up.. i got the 18-70 kit and the 75-300. This was taken at 300mm from 5ft away, so not technically a macro shot...shot raw and edited in photoshop

    thanks

    well they have the fastest live view, and a tilting lcd, and a longer kit lens, and built in stabilization (so every lens has it) and the wide variety of cheap lenses (old minolta) and i like sony products. this seemed to have the most bang for the buck

    Should have stopped down a bit so that all the flowers are in focus, the 3 OOF ones are kinda distracting.

    hmm i was thinking about that..its just that i want all the attention on the big flower, so if the others were in focus, it may have been more distracting

    Congratulations on your purchase. I have 5 cameras, but one recent purchase is the Sony A350 because of the live view and tiltable LCD screen which I use a lot.

    I bought the body only and more expensive lenses but I have shot handheld at f. 2.8 and 1/8 of a second and the result was very sharp photos.

    I think your first shots look really good. I have to say though I think on your first one if you wanted your main subject to be the blooming flower, to just change the angle of your shot. Make it so you the rest are blurry in the background, so it definately become your main subject.
