Hubby bought me this lens for my birthday (back in September). Alas, the 12-40 wasn't in the budget. :D Personally, I think this is pretty darn good lens.

Trying my Raynox-250 on a few different lenses. So far not too impressed but the ropey weather, low light and lack of tripod are likely to be the culprits (ie my poor technique ;-) Will keep picking away. These are with my Zuiko OM 135mm f2.8 - seems to make a nice combination -

Playing around with focus stacking using the 43mm macro mode of the O12-50, with 47mm of auto extension tubes. IQ is so-so with so much extension, and adjusting at this crazy magnification is way too hard without a focussing rail!

Wow that is some serious magnification. Not too bad without a rail setup.

Details of my wife's costume jewellery necklace - at macro magnifications all the imperfections show up!
