Since I don't have a dedicated macro lens, I'm using the Oly 12-40 as an alternative which does really well considering it's a standard zoom.

I find this lens to be particularly good for flowers. Here are a couple of shots from an amaryllis flower using the E-M1.

The 12-40 is really a fantastic lens. I couldn't hope for better IQ from wide-open at all focal lengths all the way to f/8! In real life shots, I think its IQ matches the primes I have and the color rendition and contrast are excellent.
