    Huge difference. It's the only thing that keeps me from taking blurry pictures, whether they be macro shots or not.

    I use a Nikon D-40. It works great for tank shots only when the fish stay still for a few seconds...lol.. I put it on the flower setting and it takes clearer pictures.. sometimes I have to use a tripod. [​IMG]

    i find a UV filter and circle polarizer filter help get clearer pics when taking photos of my tanks. Tripods are great for pics of corals but for fish i always shoot hand held. A nice little trick with shooting corals on a tripod is to turn all the pumps off so the polyps arent swaying in the current...then once you line up the shot set the shutter on the timer. this will stop any motion jitter from you pressing the shutter button.
