Great little lens. I'm not parting with mine.

295 after 65 cash back. Sounds a bargain to me.

eg https://www.wexphotovideo.com/olympu...SAAEgJKC_D_BwE

Q? To those who have a copy. Is the body plastic?

I can imagine. The Oly 45 is also plastic, a fabulous lens, albeit physically smaller making it feel really solid.
There's a world of difference between the cheap plastic toys that come out of Christmas crackers, and high quality engineering polymers that enable tight tolerances required for optical equipment. The fact that it's plastic wouldn't put me off; certainly not at 295 after cash back.

Re: Wanted 60mm macro

Is the M43 60mm as good as the 4/3rds 50mm?

Don't have the 50mm but the 60mm is superb.

H have both. 60mm is considerably more compact than FT 50mm (+MMF-3) and focuses much more quickly and reliable (and quietly). Both have such excellent IQ I'd hesitate to compare them. 50mm is a stop wider. 60mm supports focus stacking.

I'm pleasantly surprised how quickly my 4.3 50mm focuses in mr E-P5. It seems much faster than on my E3 or E5.
