    Hi folks,

    Recently bought an EP1 and have the 17mm and 20mm primes however I'd like to get a macro lens, I was wondering if there are any native lens options? Or are there some decent manual or 4/3 lenses worth looking at?

    I have seen some wonderful images using the 35/3.5 Olympus 4/3 macro+adapter. I realize that isn't exactly a "native" lens but I think of adapted lenses as MF legacy glass (also a good option).FWIW, I always manually focus when I shoot macros so I think that opens up a lot of options outside of native lenses.

    That said, the PL 45/2.8 is nice.
