So whats the problem? Shooting at f2 as you have here it is as it should be for a close up, a narrow band of sharp focus.

Indeed John, it is as Paul states. This is correct for the 50mm F2 lens.

With an aperture of f2, and shooting a subject that close will always result in a very narrow depth of field. Your lens is perfect, no problem with it honestly.

Thanks Guys
I have been shooting all afternoon and then the penny dropped
Never had a macro with f2 before
For some reason my drive for photography has waned of late then I saw an ad for the only lens I didn't have in the HG Lens lineup at a price that was to good to resist. Thought I might have made a mistake but I think my interest is now revived
Thanks again
All I need now is for olympus to produce a M4/3 pro body that will focus my 4/3 lenses fast and it's all smiles
