Well done. I like it. Do you ? Not perfect...
Just testing and playing around a bit with great horizons in mind.

Excellent lighting and a very clean image.

Yes, I like it a lot. in fact, it was one of the things that drew me to the E-M1 (with the v.4 firmware). I've written about some of the technical details on my website.

I use it all the time for flower photography. My only reservation is that I wish the automatic version could do more than 8 steps, since I have to make compromises between resolution and overall depth. I often have to turn to focus bracketing and then do the stacking separately in the computer.

I am missing something Mike.
I use the 5 Mark II and it makes more than 8 steps... or am I on the wrong menu ?
Or perhaps, the firmware is more recent...

Re: Focus stacking !

I was referring to the focus stacking feature. To quote from the Olympus website: "Olympus OM-D E-M5 II firmware 4.0 adds the focus stacking feature found on the TG-5 and E-M1 II. In this mode, eight images are captured as focus is shifted to create a composite final image with greater depth of field." Focus bracketing, where a final composite image is not produced in the camera can provide up to 99 steps.
