    I don't have this lens, but am a bit interested in getting one. I didn't see a thread here so, I thought I make a thread for the users who have one.

    You supplied the thread, the least I can do is to supply a picture. :th_salute:
    I have the 30mm Macro but haven't used it yet, just some indoor tries.
    But here is a picture. (Swedish krona coin, about 25mm across.)
    P1000170_DxO_Low.
    Converted to BW in DxO.
    Adding a picture of the coin in full.
    P1000165_DxO_Low.
    Both GM5 + 30mm, with lens almost/just touching the table.

    I know lots of people think this is a weird focal length, but I happen to like it very much for general 'walkabout' (especially when paired with the 17mm)

    Back when I had my Pentax K-x, my favorite lens was the DA Macro 35mm f/2.8 Ltd. I never used it for macro, just close focus and general shooting. If this lens had been released before the Oly 25mm f/1.8, I'd have snapped it up. Now, not so sure this lens would get that much use, as I've got extension tubes and the MCON P02. I keep thinking about it though....

    Davide, you're really putting this lens to good use.

    One of the things I like about this focal length is that magnification that I see in the viewfinder (E-M5 ii) closely matches what I see with the naked eye. In other words, I look at something, raise the camera to my eye and the subject appears the same distance away from me. With a wider angle lens or a telephoto lens, the subject appears more distant or closer all of a sudden. It's a momentary adjustment, of course.
