OM-D E-M5 vs. Nikon D3200 macro test using Olympus 60mm F2.8 and Nikon 85mm F3.5VR

For anybody who is interested in these lenses I did a quick test between them.  I am not an expert in macro and I didn’t want to use a tripod. I was hoping for 1:1 macro in these images. So I set the lens to 1:1 and manually focused by moving the camera. All hand-held jpg re-sized 50% down for upload. All shot in Aperture mode. Test shots outdoors in the distance are very good for both. Exposure is too dark on Olympus in macro shots. Obviously the Olympus has a smaller sensor than Nikon. So F8 on Olympus is equal to F16 on full frame.



outside they are both sharp
