Shot @f/2.8

The shot is, I think, not bad considering I had no tripod and the lighting was poor. The circular bokeh disc shape is nicely preserved near the corner of the frame. :)

There is a serious amount of detail in that shot, very impressive considering the lighting and handheld.

Will it fit my E-5? :D

Very impressive. What's it like as a short tele, using it at f4.5 *???

Obviously my thoughts are for use as a tight crop portrait lens.

Thanks

I'd like to know its short tele advantages, qualities too as I'm sure it would be a lovely lens for portrait use too.

This photo of the watch is really impressive for the conditions & lighting etc. I am definitely putting this lens on my wish list (a telephoto zoom will probably be first).

Ian, I would like to know how well it AF's on small subjects (with the E-M5) such as a fly or ant etc. at 1:1 or 1:2. Does it give consistantly good & fast focus with that use?

I'd be more interested at what it's like at f2.8 as that is the eqiuvalent of f4.5 on full frame and a ideal dof for head and shoulder portraits.

Just put this through Lightroom, and it's a very impressive, sharp, image with wonderful bokeh. Thanks for posting, Ian. Was this taken using autofocus?

Very nice Ian, and considering it was overexposed the amount of detail in the raw image that I pulled out of it with CaptureOne including all the highlight detail was amazing !

It's definatley on my I want list, including that Sony sensor be it in a Pen or OMD.:)

And you'll show us all up with some more fantastic macro shots like you did with the Sigma lens. ;) :D

I'm afraid that I might give into temptation sooner than intended too. :o

This is seriously interesting....I assume its selling point is macro......but if thats not what you do then how do you choose between this and the 75mm.....and why is it a lot cheaper than the 75? Its also sealed better than the 75.
Am I missing something?

Don't tell everybody until I've bought mine. :p :D

The 75mm is a f1.8 lens & the glass is large by comparison. Large quality glass usually means large cost.

You're too kind Ross :D
Actually I'm hoping it will get me posting more... or at least capturing some macro images worthy of posting :)

Yes, I'm torn between the two. That's not to say I can afford either ....
