  2. Not bad for a refurb (color me happy)

    I saw this a week or so ago, and bit the bullet, ordering a 300R along with it. The 300R was backordered, so I had to contact them after 10 days to ask where things were. They sent the 45mm on its way, and it got here today. :smile: Just a few shots so far, but I can say I'm going to like it. It's the closest thing I can probably have to compare with the old Zuiko 85mm/2.0 that I have so dearly missed. I would change one thing about it, and that would be for a bit closer minimum focus distance. I'll probably spring for the Olympus macro accessory lens, or perhaps a good quality screw-on close-up lens.
