Re: Question about Macro with XZ-1/2
In reply to Marla, 11 months ago

I have a setup that I LOVE for macros, let me share it with the group.

I have an E-5, but surely a MFT would also work.  I use a Sigma 105 f/2.8 macro lens, ISO around 400, f/8, and the E-5 flash.  The lens is super-sharp, and I have about 30cm (1 ft) of working distance, which enables me to get insects etc without scaring them away.

This setup is very simple to use, and the results are fantastic.

The XZ type of cameras work very nicely, but the problem is the small working distance.
