I agree with JDAL stop posting these images.
You might force me to sell my kids into slavery.

Re: Olympus 6omm f2.8 Images

Very Impressive images,
look forward to seeing alternative uses
as I do very few macro shots.

Please next time a warning about massive spider photos
it made my skin crawl - too much detail

Re: Olympus 6omm f2.8 Images

Those images are superb!! Thank you for showing us what this lens is capable of Brian and Huw!
I was going to ask Father Christmas for a fish-eye but having seen those shots, I'm now reconsidering!
Unfortunately I have a spider phobia, and checked this thread just before bed last night. I must confess it took me a while to get to sleep after seeing that incredible spider image. It made me realise that I am right to be scared of them!!

How on earth do people get such shots...



A "Bird on a stick" is one thing but this is a whole new level...

Brilliant !

Re: Olympus 6omm f2.8 Images

I had the chance to shoot some non-macro images today and despite diabolic light, rain, mist etc. I got some not bad results which I will post for you to have a look at tomorrow.

I will be interested to see what you make of them

(no spiders - I promise )

The 60mm macro + EM-5 performed smoothly without a hitch despite the foul weather

Re: Olympus 6omm f2.8 Images

Thanks for all the great examples so far. Huw, I knew I could count on you & Brian you have done well too. This should be a great lens to satisfy us like the 50/2 did on 4/3's (which I never got to experience), but probably better. There is one place advertising it for $535 here (in Aus) & maybe that will be where I will get it (same place I bought my E-M5).

Don't feel bad. We've had 30+ degrees last week with bush fires in a couple of locations & today it is snowing on the tablelands of the east of Australia. It seems to be falling at lower altitudes as it goes further north in NSW (down to 900 metres) & is even sleeting into Queensland. My wife rang from her school (being a teacher) with snow on the ground at about 1000 metres & starting at around 800m at the top of the Blue Mountains (west of Sydney). She didn't take her camera though. It's just raining here at home (400 m).

Havagoodwunanyhow!

Re: Olympus 6omm f2.8 Images

Thanks for the encouragement Ross, I'll blame you for putting me up to it
I'm looking forward to seeing some more of Brian's macro images tomorrow, sounds like he might just have a damp theme going on judging by today's weather (pretty heavy rain for most of the day).
Sounds like you're not doing too well weather wise either Ross
