      Am I asking too much for these lenses ? can't believe there is no interest for quality glass.

        Does the 50mm macro offer a 1:1 magnification? If so, I'll take it.

            It's still a great lens Paul one of the best 4/3s ones. Don't use mine very often but Harold often uses his for macros and adds a multiplier lens.

                The 50mm macro will give 1:1 with the matching Olympus 4/3 extension tube (the EX-25).

                  Oh of course I forgot that, and it works very well.

                    From the conclusions, when dpreview tested this lens in 2009:

                    "The Olympus Zuiko Digital 50mm F2.0 Macro is a lens which we've held in high regard ever since we started using it for our reviews of Four Thirds camera bodies, and subjecting it to our full optical test suite shows precisely why. Certainly in terms of the studio results, it's the nearest we've yet found to a technically perfect lens (although it's important to appreciate that we haven't yet tested any comparable short tele macros for other formats). It's impressively sharp right across the frame even wide open, shows no significant lateral chromatic aberration or vignetting, and is near-perfectly corrected for distortion. Real world results not only bear this out, but also show that the lens maintains image quality across the entire focus distance range, making it suitable for macro, portraits and general-purpose short telephoto use alike - no mean feat at all. And in design terms it's compact and reasonably lightweight, yet solidly build and weatherproofed, providing a combination of features unmatched by any other manufacturer."

                      Thanks for all the responses and input. E-bay have few 50-200 but I've not checked whether or not they are SWD but they're all priced higher than mine, so those were the prices I was basing mine on.

                        Thanks for info on magnification. I have the 60mm f2.8 macro, but I've heard so much about this old 4/3 lens that I thought it might make a replacement. However, I really don't want to have to add extension tubes etc to get to 1:1 so I think I'll pass - sorry! Good luck with the sale though.
