    Very nice images which also speak well for the lens.

    I have had the Vivitar Series 1 version of this lens and had not got a chance to try it out till last night. Here's what I got:

    Simply the sharpest lens I have ever owned. That includes numerous other highly regarded macro lenses. I got a great deal on mine so I could make good money selling it but can never bring myself to do it.

    Starting to get the hang of this lens.... especially after reading this link to OMD settings and usage guide for legacy lens.

    OK, all you omd users how does this balance on a tripod? Also, how does this lens compare w/new tokina 100mm 2.8 macro?

    Balances fine on a tripod, when you mount the extender and focus down to 1: 1 it is long so you just have to be aware but I never had an issue with it wanting to fall over or anything. My tripod is just a average $100 one with ballhead so nothing special.

    As to the 90 vs 100, check out this blog Making Not Taking: Tokina AF 100mm f/2.8 AT-X Pro Macro 1:1 note the first paragraph.

    Thankyou. Yeah I saw that, before. I read where customizing the adapted lens settings( magnified view) for the em5 can be challenging. I saw a nice copy of the 90mm(canon mount) for $400, but for an extra hundred( less including adapter) I could have the new 60mm oly. I was hoping to get 2 lens in one w/ the tokina, a macro and a nice fast long zoom. I've got a 45 oly already so the 60mm is really too similar in length for that advantage. I'm thinking going with the 60mm for ease of use vs. 90mm being more difficult but challenging to my fledgling full manual skills + long zoom. Then there's the whole size thingy! dilemmas, dilemmas.

    Check your pm.
    Setting up the e-m5 is not really hard at all. Couple key settings and off you go. I handhold almost all my macros with it, the IBIS of the e-m5 is amazing.

    Basically between the 90mm and 60mm I think the IQ will be a wash, no real differences unless you extreme pixel peep so:
    60mm pro's: size, weather sealing, AF
    90mm pro's: longer focal length and greater working distance for macro's, smooth precise MF, cost (plus being adapter you could also use it on other mirror-less systems should you ever switch)

    Great shot, guys. Does anyone have any shots of the background blur when NOT shooting macro? Thanks!

    After my ordeal with the Vivitar Series 1 90mm 2.5, and then another ordeal where the guy shipping me his Tokina 90 2.5 put in a hero effort shipping it (free express post! that he put in on a weekend! and arrived 3 days earlier than expected!) but the aus post delivery of the nikon f > m43 adapter was delayed by the postie making up lies about my mailbox (googling reveals this is a disturbingly widespread trend?!) and not even leaving a card for me to pick the thing up later, the saga and buildup to actually, for real, finally getting to play with this was kind of like:



    Anyway.

    Just because when I look into lenses it kind of confuses me when people PP their sample pics and I have little idea what the lens really spits out before it is messed with - some SOOC equivalent shots all at F2.5 and processed the same (0/0/0 sharp/contrast/saturation, natural) out of Oly Viewer 3. No particular artistic sensibility to it other than shooting whatever I found to the best of my semi-competence :D
