Re: Macro lens

All I can say on this is despite already having two excellent Zuiko e-series Macro lenses (which are excellent and I still use them - OK I use the 50 I can't prize the 35 out of the wife's hands) I have Just (10 minutes ago) purchased the 60 mm micro 4/3 lens myself

The small size is excellent to drop in a pocket, but the killer feature was the in camera focus stacking with the 1mkII

I tried it out on an Oly photo walk recently and even in breezy conditions I got useable shots on flower heads - they are in here and please bear in mind that I had just sat down with the lens a few seconds before and this is my very 1st shot with it

My Kit (OK I'm a hoarder...)
4/3 E500, E510, E30 + 35macro, 50macro, 7-14, 11-22, 14-45 (x2), 14-54, 40-150 (both types), 50-200, 70-300, 50-500,
