Of course, I'm sure the dedicated macro lenses like the 60mm Zuiko and 45mm Elmarit are great at this whole minimum focus distance thing On the other hand, I've become curious about which unexpected performers are out there, as this is often considered a minor trait in a lens, but which opens plenty of creative opportunities. A nice surprise to me was the 19mm Sigma, it can focus really close for a non-macro lens, and while it's advertise to only focus down to 20cm, I'm sure the actual focus capability is much closer. It can focus significantly closer than the 14mm which is supposed to be able to focus down to 18mm away. I'm wary of purchasing the 17mm Zuiko, which 'only' goes down to 25cm, while we still don't know how well the unreleased 15mm Leica performs in this and other regards. Which lenses have surprised you with their capability to get close shots?
