    Well sunday finds me in sunny Maui... and I had a wander around my hosts garden with the E-M1 and the Zuiko 50/2 Macro for 4/3.... supposedly one of the sharpest lenses DPR have ever tested.

    Anyway, here are a few Gecko shots and other fauna and flora

    Found that SAF + manual worked well along with focus peaking with this lens.... also assigned Fn1 button for DOF preview. Close up the DOF at F2 is about the thickness of a breath if you are handholding... so you really do want to stop down if you can

    A few more shots for now in this set - all 50mm Macro so far

    but I am sure I will be adding to this set during my week here

    cheers
