    I've used many a macro lenses over the years and I'm extremely impressed by the performance of this lens. I can't believe it's only $600.

    My only complaint is that the hood seems hard to find!

    Will be adding a ringlight kit to my bag in the near future and really see what this thing can do.

    Excellent work! It's great that we now have a choice between two great macro lenses for m4/3. And here it's only $500...

    I got my 60mm on Thursday and have been very impressed, not only with the macro, but also using it as a portrait lens. I'm not so sure that I really need to get that 75mm anymore.

    It's definitely a great lens.
    Since I sold my Leica 45mm, if I ever decide to get another MACRO, this would be it....:smile:

    Oh hell! Now you've gone and done it. I have to get one, can't live without one, and I've just been laid off. Damn!

    Nice pictures, by the way.

    Same pictures look so much better here than on DPReview. How come?

    DPreview forums seem to have software that stretches out the photos a bit making them less sharp. I don't like posting stuff there anymore, because it just ends up making me look bad :mad:
