I have pushed the button on one of these at £135, would have been rude not to at that price, I was a vintage festival at the weekend with my 12-40 pro and felt I needed something a bit more, I have the oly 45 1.8 which I didn't think it would be worth taking & a pile of legacy lenses that are fun & bulky but when you need to be quick there not up to the job

BH has the silver for $229 but all the black are gone. Adorama website is down so no clue about there. I think I'm leaning toward the stay native lens and get macro with the O60 for not too much more.

I actually sold my 60mm f2.8, even though I loved the sharpness and rendering. The focal length was just far too restrictive for me, I felt like I was never physically planted in just the right spot for framing. I think I'm more of a 45mm tele guy. Trying to talk myself into trying one of those out.

I love my 60mm Oly macro. Now that they are frequently offering it on sale I can't imagine choosing the Sigma. As has been said, you gain macro, weather sealing, and a focus limiter. The Oly is still pretty small, lightweight, and quite sharp out to infinity focus.

(Unless of course they discount the heck out of the last stock of Sigmas...)
