Best Compact for Macro


Jul 8, 2010
Ricoh GRD4. Without a doubt.

It doesn't quite meet your criteria, but the Ricoh GXR 50mm is another very good option.

Probably the GRDIV though I don't have one anymore... but to be honest as a very enthusiastic macro photographer.. none of them. I want the big glass and what it produces which is why I can't fully convert to compact.

Mate if you framed the question just a little differently then I have a definitive answer for you.

Hands down the PL 45mm Macro-Elmarit! Works on the EP2 and can be had for less than a GRD4 new. :thumbsup:

I like what i get from my GRD III, one reason I love using compact cameras is they have versatile lens, wide aperture + macro focus + zoom all in one package. makes it very convenient if you want to travel light

Isn't the Fuji X10 quite good too for Macro ?

I myself had a LX5 for a while
