Are you intimating the camera makes up for my shitty photographic skills 🙂
Never! I just can’t get such detailed photos with my el-cheapo digital that’s all :envy:

‘Tis okay, I was joking 🙂 I have just enough skill to realise I am not a decent photographer.

You do need a decent lens and these can be expensive for a good one. If you have patience (and a limited budget) and you know what to look for you can scour ebay etc for a decent 2nd hand lens and then buy a cheaper camera to fit.
All I did in the above pics was cheat 🙂 I set the aperture settings in the lens to a stop above the lowest on the lens and then plonked the camera on a tripod. In post processing, I imported the raw data into a program called Lightroom to clean them up a little eg crop and insert a artificial vignette on a few, compensate for lens distortion etc. None of the latter is really necessary though, you will be surprised how much “sharper” you can get your pics if you just use a tripod. The bokeh (out of focus background) on the other hand, is tricky with out control over the aperture
