I'm new to macro. I've recently sold off my collection of lenses to downsize. For one reason or another, they were not getting used, and now I feel I may have gone too far. Sold were Panny 12-35; Panny 45-175; and PanLeica 25 (my most used). I've realized that I'm only interested in 2 things - portability, a "normal" focal length, and price. So this 30mm macros has been released, is sub-$500, the right focal length (pretty much), and has the added bonuses of built-in stabilization, and can take macro shots. I realize the length is a bit short for macro, but it's the best I've got. The one doubt I have is that the Oly 25 is smaller, lighter, cheaper, and has a wider aperture (1.8 vs 2.8). What to do? Thoughts? Opinions? I tend to be a casual photog - pics of pets, friends, inside & out, currently have an EM5.
