    Hi there,
    Just getting around to buying my first new lenses for an EPL-1 which i inherited. One of the things that i've always loved doing is taking photos of plants, flowers insects, small stuff basically.

    I really like the idea of getting some vintage lenses and giving them a new home. As such are there any vintage macro lenses which anyone can recommend for use with an EPL-1?

    You should be able to get good results with any true macro lens.
    Just don't expect a zoom with macro on it to be a macro lens, almost without exception zooms use macro to mean fairly close focusing rather than gives even half life size images.
    I've never met a true macro that doesn't produce excellent images (even my £1 boot sale one after it was cleaned up) and one of the beauties of µ4/3 is you can adapt just about any lens to it.

    Ok. Can you suggest any sub £100 ones which you think would fit the bill? I don't want to have to get so close to the subject that I scare it away though...
