What about having a separate image thread just for macro pictures?

Hope this will be followed, we can share our macro takes but also our questions, doubts, experiences...

This was a real challenge with the 28 mm of the Q. Much easier with a 100mm macro and my Canon 5D3. It is obviously highly cropped. I'll have to try again someday with the fast shutter instead of with a flash. SF-40.

Splashart with the Q? I wouldn't have thought...I don't think the 28mm is appropriate. I had fun trying a whole afternoon but with my D800 and a 105mm macro...and the results were astonishing. Well, I am curious to see what you can get with a new try.

Wouldn't try either the fly's eye without a macro 105 and the tubes...

But there is a lot of things we can do on macro mode with the Q, and it would be fun to share it here.

Thanks Infiniumguy, have a nice week,

Isabel

I wouldn't think anyone would buy a Q just so they could pursue macro photography, but I do like that it has the feature, something different with the 28.  My first day which wasn't long ago I went in my backyard (that's American for "garden") in the late afternoon and took a bunch of shots including a few with the macro.  

 

Here's a couple.  This one is a leaf on our fig tree, and while it looks frontlit, the light is actually coming through the leaf.

Effectively nobody would buy a Q for macro, but I am surprised with what we can achieve with it...

I posted this in the main image thread, but it was taken with the macro lens setting. Purely opportunistic because I could easily switch to macro. Fun.

Check out Leslie Gleim of Honolulu for Leica Q (and XV) macro photography. This lady is leading the way for macro work with this new camera.
