Craig, I hope you can post a review of the 45mm macro soon. I have been on the fence about this lens for some time. The few reviews online are somewhat unfavorable, but seem to judge the lens on lab tests. I've looked at plenty of real world images that seem fantastic. Please share your thoughts on this lens when you can. Thanks.
Absolutely beautiful captures! Thx for sharing these. I can't wait to get my paws on this lens. Would you happen to have any portrait samples? Thx.Right - I have poped out today and taken a few snaps, with this lens. Have to admit, it makes the GF1 look a more serious camera with that square hood on
I ordered this lens for general usage, as I have little interest in Macros (though, I do take hand-held closeups of urban fragments). It will be utilized more as how you've used it (walk around), street photography, travel & portraits. Tele macro lenses are such versatile tools. Cheers.Thanks for the comments, I did try to do some nice variations on what the lens could be used for - Portraits is something I have on my list next! I think this will make a good portrait lens in the right environment despite what some forums say.
