i recently picked up this lens from a forum member and its becoming one of my all time favorites for pretty much anything--but macro! i really dont do macro very much, but i am enamored by this lens's filmlike rendering. let me know what you think. btw, the last two are taken at iso6400, all taken with my epl5, modelo blanca.

Nice work...macro lenses have always been secret weapons...generally they tend to be razor sharp with excellent rendering for general short telephoto use! :)

In the Leica-world, the only available long telephoto is a 135. For a long time I thought such a lens was a niche lens (having grown up on tele zooms), but the 60mm (which has almost the same field of view) showed me how useful this is, especially if it's a light, compact and high quality lens.

Very very happy to use this as my main telephoto. I will often casually walk around with the 60mm, a 25mm and the 14mm. These can cover my casual walk around needs, and fit easily even into jeans pockets. :D

You must have large jeans pockets... :)
Anyway, I like this lens too, sometimes I use it for street shooting.
