Mike, the background is nice, you did a wonderful job, but that's not what caught my eye.  The foreground is perfect!  My congratulations to Marnie for her beautiful closeup of the pair.

Yes, that is correct.  The Siggie achromatic CU diopter is 72mm and fits w/o 
any step-up-down ring and evens the playing field some.  The Nykon 5T is 62mm
and works well and fits directly on the PL 12-60.  The PL is a tad faster on 
the short end and  seems to have a bit better bokeh and subject isolation.
It took me over 45 min to try and smooth the background a tad in one of 
Marnie's shots with the MZ 12-100/4 from Bhutan and may not have done a perfect 


  Have to say I bet the MZ12-100 is a smidge sharper at 60mm than the 12-60.  I 
like both lenses and neither is perfect.
