I use it mainly for re-photographing, and thus digitizing, my & my dad's film archives. My dad's stuff goes back to the 1950s, mine to the '70s. Doing this is a lotta fun as I get to not only revisit my own stuff but, even better, discover photos of my dad's I'd never seen before. Like this one, of me & my mom from 1962. For whatever reason my dad never included it in his slide shows.

Kodak Retina IIc camera, 50mm f/2.8 Schneider lens, Kodachrome transparency film.

The 60mm & E-M5 combo pulls pretty much everything there is out of these old slides. I use f/5.6 and get sharp results corner to corner. Never misfocuses. A no-brainer lens if you do lots of closeup work.

Could you please say more about the setup that you use. I have hundreds of slides to scan and a decent but not great a film/slide scanner, which find very slow to work with, so since I also have the 60, and this looks like a method I also want to try.

Photography is a small voice, at best, but sometimes one photograph, or a group of them, can lure our sense of awareness.

Just take forth your old slides and the projector and point them too a nice white screen and then just take pictures of the screen. The results are normally far better than you may expect.
