    Here's my EP2 attached to an Olympus stereomicroscope in my lab. with a Metabones c-mount adapter. The second picture is a quick snap of some blue crystals - they're about half a millimetre long. The greenish band through the middle is due to the polarizer on the scope objective.

    I used to do solid state chemistry research, we had a badass oly microscope and I wish I still had access to it with my m4/3... Maybe I'll visit and ask for a go :)
