      Thanks to this thread for inspiration, & Barclays Plc PPI refund for giving me the means, I've joined the 60mm macro owners club.
      Early days, plenty to learn & certainly more rejects than keepers but enjoying it so far on the e-m1:

        Have fun Mick, these look like a good start

        For me the quality goes #3, #1 then #2 - that caterpillar makes me itch just looking at all those hairs

        I've just noticed you shot these wide open Mick, I would normally have gone to f5.6 to get the greater DOF.

        Some help if you would please Mick, tell me how you manage to load these images from your flikr file so they link back to original and provide the EXIF and other data.

        I've been going potty trying to find out how to do it and still haven't found the secret

          Hi Brian cheers for the comments.

          I do it on the ipad, don't know if you've got one. I upload pics to flickr on my pc then use an app called flickr stackr where you can copy and paste the bb code of any of your pics into a thread. Not sure if you can get the bb code from flickr on your pc. Hope that makes sense.

                        This lens is so sharp it is unbelievable. I will post some pics soon but I want to get used to it first. Personally I think it is sharper on the EM1 than my old 50mm lens.
                        Yes it is ps message me your address and I can post some bandages for those fingers and gloves for handling this SUPER SHARP lens

                          Well my 60 arrived, so despite the poor light here is a quick test shot from me.
