    I finally had a chance to shoot with the new Zuiko 60 2.8 macro lens and the Macro Arm Light. This is my first time using this set-up with my E-M5.

    By the way someone posted about being up in the air about purchasing either a 45 1.8 or the Macro 60 2.8. They were worried about the light not reaching when using the 60. No problem at all, it has plenty of length and worked better than I expected.

    I set this up to show the flowers from further away, on the left, to closest, on the right.

    This was shot using a MeFoto Backpacker tripod and shutter release cable.

    f/11; ISO 800; 1/10th sec

    Beautiful crisp and colorful images. Been considering adding this my line up. This certainly shows what the lens can do. Thanks for sharing.
