That's good mate & I have the confidence in you too.

Thanks for the extra link too. I'm convinced!

I'm waiting for my (late) mothers house to sell (which appears to be happening now) & the proceeds cleared before I spend anymore on lenses etc., so maybe this lens might be the next somehow, but I also want the Panasonic 100-300 lens too. Choices, choices.

Re: Got my m.Zuiko 60mm Macro

The ZD 50mm f/2.0 is an exceptional lens. It's also more expensive than the 60mm. But test charts are one thing - what are real world results like? The 60mm certainly works well in that respect.

Re: Got my m.Zuiko 60mm Macro

OK I'm in the market for a m43 Macro prime. 50mm f2 is out - I've just sold one as I couldn't get on with it on the E-M5. So it's either the 60mm f2.8 or the Leica 45mm f2.8 - has any one seen a comparison? I would tend towards the Leica on account of it's reputation plus, and it's a big plus, the in-lens OIS. Opinions please.

Regards

David

Have a look here David, just the comparison you're looking for (I think).
