Are you asking me? D2/35 and MP2/100, respectively.

EXIF data are lost because I batch-process the images in Matlab with my own scripts. I haven't looked into possibilities to preserve EXIF in Matlab, yet.

It was an observation, not a complaint.

@Toothwalker: the first one is superb!

@ Ronny: what I always wanted to ask you: how do you achieve all these in-focus images of shy creatures? And even better, with manual focus? Every time I try to capture images like that I get either OOF images or the back of flying away insects...

I'm trying to find the place where they are ..and then I sit there waiting (patience)
and selects the one place where I think they land ... Dragonflies were in their mating season so there were many dragonflies there and they were very active.. I dont run around and chase them .. the best thing is to sit still and wait and hope that they land on the place you have selected
On this series, I took 429 pictures ... about 100 are useful and 20-30 are shot that i will keep
so there will be many failed shot to
I try to set prefocus where I think they land.

Of course it is 28mm, 28 f/2 Distagon. Not sure where I got 50mm from, thanks for being so observant!

Thanks Ronny for sharing this, that sounds like a very good approach (and your results speak for themselves)! My two main mistakes that kept my keeper rate way lower than yours are then obviously (1) chasing the insects and (2) trying to focus as fast as possible before they leave their place instead of prefocusing...

Here is one that I shot a couple of days ago at a pond within the local wildlife sanctuary. Handheld on this image.

Thanks. They are equally precious to me, but I was there. The subtle colors of the altiplano and a llama procession.
I am standing at an altitude of 4.6 km in both cases, but hundreds of kilometers apart.

Here is Licancabur in the evening light. It is not a spectacular photo, but it reminds me that I was sitting there for half an hour, just looking at its delicate colors.







And here is Parinacota with some weather. It is a more dramatic photograph than the previous one, but I did not have much time to enjoy the scenery on site.

Tooth walker - Beautiful. What a beautiful shaped mountain. Same style as Mt. Fuji

Joakim - Great shot. Frost covered ground adds a nice detail and accent.

Three wide open macros with the ZE 100 (I will never learn to stop lenses down in macro photography to get everything in focus that I wanted afterwards being in focus, but it's just so much more fun to use this lens wide open... ):
