Last year Jan. (I think) when I bought my first E-PL1 body, I asked for suggestions regarding a macro lens for taking pictures of jewelry etc. The Olympus M.Zuiko 60mm 1:1 Macro m4/3 lens was suggested. looked at all the specs reviews and sample shots, fantastic. Only thing it was more than I could spend at the time, and it was 4x the cost what I paid for the body. So guys suggested the Olympus M.Zuiko 35mm Macro 4/3 with an adapter. I went that route and it really served the purpose. The slower auto focus was ok, was used to that since the past point and shoot digitals I had were about that speed. Yesterday found a Olympus M.Zuiko 60mm 1:1 Macro m4/3 in like new minty condition in the box for a really really good price. Hemmed and hawwed about for 15 minutes, the little bird on the shoulder said, you may not get another chance at this price. So I bit the bullet, picked it up this morning. Wow, smaller than the 4/3 lens first thing I said when I saw it. Popped on my E-PL1, nice. Could not believe the auto focus speed. And a few test pictures in macro 1:1 mode and some distance shots later, I was impressed. Going to love this lens.................real happy to get it. Going to sell my 35mm macro ato help recoup some of the outlay for the 60mm.
