Teamed with a micro 4/3 camera, it seems to make a perfect combination for walk-around macro - light, responsive, good quality and good DOF.
I use mine on a PL-7 body, and there have been plenty of times when I was aware that the tight spaces I was working in would have made the idea of using a FF kit laughable, and the light weight make it easy to hold in awkward positions for surprisingly long times. There's no free lunch when it comes to DOF, but it does have a properly flat focal plane, which helps to give you more useful DOF. :D
I look forward to giving it a go.
I look forward to seeing how the fancy twin flash handles those really small working distances. ;)

I really like the STF-8. It’s surprisingly easy to use and very nicely made. The way it synchronizes with the E-M1 MkII’s focus bracketing/stacking is really convenient. As for how it will all come together? I’m hoping the gear will enable some good results, but it’s all new territory for me, and in any case I’m sure there will be a learning curve on my part.
