macro choices: oly 60mm or PL45?
Nov 15, 2012

I have been thinking about getting either the Pana Leica 45mm or new olympus 60mm macro. The PL45 has always been on my wish list. Recently there are a lot of used PL45s floating around tokyo (I guess people selling in order to buy the 60mm macro) and a used PL45 is same price as a new 60mm macro right now.

reading these reviews http://blog.mingthein.com/2012/09/21/olympus-60-2-8-macro/  and http://blog.mingthein.com/2012/09/22/m43-macro-shootout/  it looks like the 60mm might have the edge, but the PL45 also is a great lens and might have more contrast. I still really like the look of the PL45 pictures I have seen on the web. They seem to have great contrast and color definition.

now that the 60mm has been out awhile, can anyone comment? anyone here switch from the PL45 to the 60mm? I know both are great lenses and I know I would enjoy either one. I shoot on a GF1 and GH1 now, but will probably buy an OMD next year.
