Re: MACRO Olympus Lens For E3

I found both the Sigma 150 f/2.8 and 50 f/2 to be equally capable when I had my E-30 and E-5 bodies.

Here's some with the 150mm, the last one is with an EC-14 as well






One with the 50mm and EC-20

Re: MACRO Olympus Lens For E3

Huw, stunning captures all of them I have to say parting with my 150 was difficult. Very difficult - because it was so darned versatile

Even after I sold and sent it ... I hesitated about replacing it for the ONE - but now have the m.4/3 60 and that filled the 150 gap

I know exactly what you mean, the 150 is a great macro lens, it affords fantastic reach with 4/3rds format and it works very nicely with the EC-14 too.

Talking about the 60mm macro, I rather hastily sold mine recently partly to help fund my Fujifilm gear (which is very nice).
However my very next lens purchase will be another m4/3rds 60mm
