Once upon a time there was a carp angler. He took some of the most amazing scenics, trophy and wildlife shots, mostly associated with carp fishing. He was without doubt the most respected carp angler in France and in the top three in Europe.

About five years ago he packed it all in to become a professional photographer. Have a browse through his site and BE AMAZED...

He's a Nikon man to his bootstraps by the way.

I normally use a tripod but still get problems setting up the shot due to focusing movement when the lens is focused at its minimum distance. This shot went through my laptop on remote shooting. The camera was solid and focusing using a 17inch screen made a difference. It was just a quick shot but a good learning curve
In the morning I will set the shot up properly using todays lessons and see what happens. I have taken a few using shadowless lighting methods which works very well as I donít want to start shopping everything

I took this shot this morning of a 5mm stamen of an artificial flower, using normal room lighting. The camera was propped up on my desktop scanner. Some focusing issues but a reasonable exposure. Sometimes natural light can pay off

Most lenses below f2 tend not to be a cheap item, although in Nikon fitting they do seem to be below those of the Canon brand.
If AF could be taken out of the equation then one of the older Nikkor lenses could represent great value for money. Older Nikkor lenses do tend to hold their price because unlike Canon you do not need a special adaptor to fit them onto modern cameras. Mifsuds do have a range of Nikon lenses in their used section. Noticed a 50mm f1.8 AFD lens for £99 or the50mm F1.8 AF for£79.

The h9 has a good lens 31- 465 mm equivilant f 2 to 4.5 but it has 15 x optical zoom which is stabilised

Bad news is its not removable but you should get close with 465 but can't vouch for the image quality ??

May find putting it on a tripod or mono pod helps and see how you go
