Micro 4/3 Micro 4/3 macro with Oly 60mm


Noticed a few people on other threads mentioning the Olympus 60mm f2.8 macro lens - I have had the Oly 60 lens for a while now but not shot much with it (bought when local temps about -28C, not ideal for patient outdoor close focus), so now in temporarily warm place, I am doing more close range shooting that it was designed for. Very impressed with the detail and colours of this lens so far. A few examples;

Tide pool anemone (through about 20cm of water) - incredible detail on the tiny shells caught in the tentacles.

Flannel flower in bloom


And one more example, with a crop:

Tide pool view; with a tiny (15mm or so) crab poking out...original shot from a metre or so away - the 120mm equivalent FL of this lens helps in not needing to get quite so close.

And a 1:1 crop of the crab (well, it is when posted...SC site will re-size a bit) - focal plane a bit behind its eyes, fantastic detail on the tiny hairs/spines on its legs!
