Re: What's the macro like on the 12-50?


Taken a few minutes ago with the standard 12-50 lens and cropped 50%. It's the closest I could get. I have a 70-300 4/3 lens and have a dilemma...keep it and use that for macro and buy the mmf3 or sell the lens and start saving for the new 60mm macro lens, unless youthink the panasonic 45mm is worth going for now?

Well, the Oly 45mm is a brilliant lens but by no stretch of the imagination is it a macro.

EDIT. Sorry, I've only just noticed you were sking about the PANASONIC 45mm. My mistake!
