    I'd be interested in feedback on use of the various Olympus and Panasonic 14-42/14-45 (including the newer "pancake" 14-42 zooms) and maybe the Oly 12-50 (though I've owned one of those) kit zooms at close distances - not macro, but 3'/1m or so. I've read a lot of reviews and posts but most people either focus (pardon the pun) on general use or actual macro (where possible), and neither is what I'm really wondering about.

    Many thanks for your thoughts.
