Re: mZuiko 60mm

Maybe it's like the 4/3 telephoto macro that was on the roadmap in 2003 that people are still waiting for.

Re: mZuiko 60mm

I'm interested too, there's a strong chance I will get it when it's released if it's a good 'un

Re: mZuiko 60mm

I think it will be given an outing at Photokina at the end of September, but that's not official - just my guess.

I hope release at Photokina will be so. Wife promised it as a combined Birthday/ Christmas present - birthday was last month so hopefully will get it before Christmas!

Re: mZuiko 60mm

There's a little bit happening in that direction here. http://blog.precision-camera.com/201...acro-lens.html

I think I'm going to have this on my very short wish list (as opposed to the other very long one).
