View Full Version : 50m Macro Ordered!

17th April 2008, 06:43 PM
All this talk of uncertainy over the E-3, and a good 'verbal slap' from my fellow members on here (plus a successful shoot at the indoor skiing, where i burried the camera / 50-22 SWD in snow to test the weatherproofing! :eek:) made me realise what a good package i have, so as a 'treat' i ordered a 50mm Macro from Ian (Kerso) :D

Not really looking for the macro side of it, but it will be a boon, but more of a sharp portrait lens.

Should be here on Saturday, so pics will follow.


Ps - only had the one camer so could not get a shot of the snow covered e-3

Good call, it's a nice lens with a multitude of uses :)

I have only had the lens 1 day (as of this post), but it is a great lens.

I think that I will be using my 12-60mm more than the 50mm, but for the money its a dam good lens.

Hello Chris

You will not regret owning the 50mm macro lens for one minute. I purchased mine around 18 months ago, and it now stops on the camera body around 80% of the time. Macro aside, it is a superb portrait, still life and landscape lens.


Cheers, Steve.
