Blow me away with your Oly 60nmm macro f2.8 pictures
4 months ago

I’ve long had a secret desire to buy one of these but I’m put off by far too many average pictures that I have seen. I’m only interested in the macro anything else portraiture and landscapes is a bonus but I don’t care enough.

I’m currently shooting macros/close up with a combination of:

100-300 not ideal but does a surprisingly good job on larger butterflies and dragonflies, standing well back as needed

14-140 and Raynox 250, this is my usual for the smaller stuff and despite being a bit fiddly and have a very critical DOF limit I do get some decent shots.

I used to have the Oly 4/3s 35 mm but sold it to fund the G6 purchase as it didn’t really feel as good with the G5 & 6 as it had with my E620

I’d like to see output from the 60mm on Panny bodies but just as interested if you are using with an Oly

The two links below show some of better efforts from last year and this and for me to make the investment I want to be able to see that I am going to improve on these.

On paper I do feel that the f2.8 alone should be enough to swing it but as I say I feel I have seen too many disappointing shots.

So go for it blow me away
