    Just arrived today, messing with macro is strangely addictive

    Nice shots, what sort of working distance, front element to subject, do you have.

    Cheers Dave.

    It was overcast and nearing dusk, snapped wide-open (f3.5), handheld, E-P1 and about 3-5cm from various surfaces on my weathered garden table and chairs.

    This Zuiko is a 1/2 magnification rather than a 1:1 - however I think you can get some teleconvertors to go 1:1. It still seems like a lovely lens for a beginner like me and it can be found relatively cheaply (and it works on my OM's).

    The macro really makes me appreciate all the textures that exist if only we took the time to look.

    When the sun pops out, I'll be trying it on a tripod in the garden next - try for some flowers or an elusive bumble bee :)

    Nice work. That's what I call macro!

    This is such a cute compact lens for a macro. It's great to see such fabulous images from it!

    Just traded Narnian my 200 f4 for this lens. I had a couple of 90mm, including a bokina, but they are so big and unruly, even on a tripod. I like this little jewel. Easy to handhold and carry around. Nice bokeh,too. Just a practice shot with something in the house.OOC. Not seeing any CA either. No flowers or insects here yet outdoors. The second is highly edited in LR and ColorFX.
