I used a hoya +4 filter with my g2

Seems that the depth of field (DOF) is either significantly reduced by the macro filter or the focal point is too close to the lens in this shot.
The front edge of the leaf seems to be in sharp focus, but the fly begins to blur and the rear legs are without much definition.
I have taken a number of macro shots and just used the zoom with the macro setting and gotten crisp images of small objects. You might want to experiment a bit with this filter and see if the loss of clarity is a focus issue or lack of clarity as a result of the filter.

I think I pushed the filter by zooming in 3X optical and 3.2 digi

I agree with Dale. Would have been a great shot if it were completely in focus.
I'm so jealous that you're able to do this with your camera. I love my s300, but it's quite limited when it comes to close-ups.
Keep at it!

Here is a shot that I just took this afternoon between thunderstorms :)
I just used the G2s zoom and internal macro on the bumble bee.
The zoom and macro ability of the G2 without external filters is quite impressive IMHO.

I have observed that the greater the power of the filter used the more steady the camera must be held. The G2 makes good hand held macros without filters, but you will need a tripod for filters if you want to get a very high percentage of in focus shots. IMHO
This is because the depth of field becomes very narrow.
