Shot on an E-M1 - from about 1.75m away for the first and about 1m for the second - nice working distances compared to my 50/55mm macros -
Yes, I've been very surprised by the working distance. In the past I'd use a brighter 50 or 55mm macro but overshadow the subject, now I can stand back a pace or two and use a slower lens without worrying so much about scaring off an insect. Looking forward to using it when the bumble-bees re-appear in Spring.Nice, the 200mm focal length can be a bit of a disappointment for many lenses but this looks like a good one.
How's the CA performance?
Gotta love the working distance on longer macros.
Try it on some birds and larger subjects; I have an old Tamron that I really like for that stuff.
