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.
