I practically live in the jungle, a lens hood and protection filter was a necessary piece of kit for this lens. Shocking really, how much hard use I give mine. Two hoods available for this, one a snazzy thing that slides in and out.After waiting 4 years to pick one of these up (had 2 canon 500D's for my long zooms) I have to say I love it (especially for the price I paid). This lens will make my amazon jungle trip next year.
Thank you very much. Close contact with some different species would be nice. I think I need to get out more.Cool shot!
Guess it had to be, following on from Hayath’s awesomeness..
Well done, like it.
Overall, I’d say the bar is getting set higher every week in this thread.
This. Before buying I read reviews and never imagined the size. When it was delivered I was pleasantly shocked to see how small it was as compared to Sigma 105mm and 150mm macros that I had for Nikon. The 60mm makes a breeze of handheld macros that I could never achieve with Sigmas. In fact 150 comes with a tripod foot and is nearly impossible to hold that combination with one hand let alone focus, stabilize and press shutter button. I'm so grateful for this little 60mm.I forgot to mention, love how tiny it is, for what is essentially a 120mm macro lens. I so appreciate the tiny primes in this m4/3 system.
