Macro options for bugs and butterflies
Apr 25, 2012

I use an E30 with 12-60, 50-200 and an EC20 which covers most of my photographic needs but, like I suspect many others, was waiting for the Oly 100mm macro do the little things in life. Since that has now disappeared off the radar for good I would be grateful for thoughts or recommendations from anyone with a succesful recommendation.

I have tried both zooms with the EC20 and its surprising what you can achieve but neither a particularly handy solutions. I guess the options are either keeping a look out for a used Sigma 150mm f2.8 (or maybe the 100mm) or alternatively the Oly 50mm f2 with my existing EC20 - or adding an EC14 to the line up.

IQ matters, working range matters, flexibilty for other uses is of interest,

What do you think?
