I do amateur product photography, mostly vintage/military watches. I bought a micro four thirds for "her ladyship" and was impressed enough to consider selling the Sigma housebrick.

After a few tests, the DSLR remains ahead in the sharpness stakes - but only just. However, the sheer convenience of the M4/3 is sorely tempting. I have a M4/3 Leica 45mm Elmarit macro coming, and that will be the real test against the Sigma 70mm f/2.8 macro.

Interesting that you went for the Leica 45/2.8 over the M. Zuiko 60/2.8, which is garnering rave reviews at the moment and which is cheaper.

Is it because you prefer a shorter focal length for macro?

I bought an M. Zuiko 60/2.8 on special for US $395 and have been getting shots like this:
