Just got a macro lens for my E-P1 and now I'm thinking my Canon 60/2.8 macro has to go (although E-P1 has no flash). It's much more convenient to focus with :43: and quality is, well, exactly what I expected from a macro lens. Paid $50.
Both shots are cropped, but that's ok, I ordered extension tubes for $15.

I had that lens. Very nice, very sharp. I ended up upgrading to the OM 50mm 2.0, but that's only because I wanted the lens to double for portraits, but in terms of strictly macro, and in terms of cost ($50 vs. over $300 for the 50/2), that's a great lens. Very compact, too.

That's exactly what made me choose it, it's smaller than similar lenses from other brands, plus I already had an OM adapter.

I bade the lens with euro90 twice on eBay, lost both time. Better luck next time. Really good IQ for the money, and like its compact size.
