a classic & great lens - I have one and an f3.5 also - but have ever used one on my m43 bodies

I use the PL 45mm for the Lumix bodies - have any of you compared that to the macro Nikkors?

I haven't got the PL45 but the O60 - as my eyes get older I rely on the AF more. However I still find a lot of my better shots come from adapted manual focus macros at the distances I shoot at - flowers, the occasional insect/bee. The Micro Nikkor (I have 3, 2x 55mm AI and 1x AF) is great although more recently I've been using the Zuiko f3.5 50mm & Super Takumar f4 50mm macros - they're both a little lighter/smaller/handier than the Nikon.

Trying the Viltrox FR with some different combos - this was E-M5 w/ the 55mm f2.8 & Viltrox FR.
I have to admit I was expecting the extra glass to mess with the images more but they seem fine.

Took some earlier shots in the Abstract Nature thread but thought I'd try them again with a piece of white-card as a backdrop to help tidy up the framing.
