Re: Question about Macro with XZ-1/2
In reply to Marla, Nov 14, 2013

I have an E-PL2 and the Oly 60 macro.   I also have an XZ-2.  I do macro and close up work with both.

If I am carrying the XZ-2, odds are I don't have a tripod with me, don't have flash other than onboard with me, etc.  So in one sense it is "easier" because I just take what I can handheld.  The results are sometimes more satisfying because the smaller sensor of the XZ-2 gives more depth of field, thus making getting a decent portion of the image in proper focus easier.  The faster lens of the XZ-2 helps sometimes too vs. the Oly 60 macro (2.8) or the Oly 4/3 35mm 3.5 macro I used before I got the 60.
