Re: Macro lens of choice

Alf, Lastolite make (or used to make) a collapsable flash diffuser. IIRC it was called Apollo and attached to the flash with velcro.

Apparently it isn't Lastolite. I found my collapsable diffuser. It's a Westcott Micro Apollo and the diffusion panel is about 6 x 9 inches.

Re: Macro lens of choice

Hi all, I have been following this great thread coming from canon recently the first lens I bought with my em1 was the 60mm oly. Which is a superb lens once mastered, however it's MFT is to close for insects. I have the canon 100mm is 2.8 has anyone tried to use this lens with a olympus em1 om5 camera? And which adapter would you recommend. At this moment in time it's almost impossible to locate a sigma 150mm
Kind regards Mike

Look HERE not scheap though if you had a 65mm MP-E I would say it was worth and it may be if you cannot find a Sigma.
