Here is the criterion for this comparison: the Olympus 45mm lens. As you can see it is quite a bit sharper than the 14-42mm kit zoom set at 42mm, which is the third image in this series.

Here is the 20mm with the Digital Tele Converter enabled. Compare it with the previous image which is the 14-42mm kit zoom set at 42mm. i think the 20 plus DTC is about as good or a bit better.

This is the 45mm Olympus with the Digital Tele Converter enabled. Looks pretty good to me, and it's a help in composition.

Placards in Rome after 9/11. There were also torchlight parades in support of New York City and the U.S.

An unusual look at the Pantheon, from the balcony of a room in an adjoining hotel.

This is a self-portrait when I was in a particularly jolly mood. It bears a startling resemblance to a large crab in a restaurant crab tank waiting to become food.

Here is a closeup of the Basic Setup, with just ShotCopy and the EM10. This may turn out to give the same results as the Advanced Setup but with a little more hassle adjusting the camera position accurately. The Basic Setup is identical with the setup recommended on the ShotCopy web site.

Once more, there are a lot of ways of digitizing slides. What I am aiming for, besides high quality, is RAPID digitization of THOUSANDS of slides, or at least as rapid as is reasonably possible.

The extremely high quality and long working distance of the Olympus 60mm macro lens, and the excellent focus peaking of the EM10 give me a shot at accomplishing this.

This is the Advanced Setup, showing the source of light of the correct color temperature, a tilted PortA-Trace 2 bulb light box from Gagne, very well made. The EM10 is sitting on the Fotodiox slide rail which is sitting on the magnetized base of the ShotCopy, also a product I like a lot. Notice that this setup makes it possible to adjust the relative positions of the slide and the camera in almost all orientations.

This is a Fotodiox slide rail, about $80 at Dodds Camera in Ohio, very well made and capable of very precise camera movements. It is for use in the Advanced Setup for Plan A for slide duplication. I have learned that for ordinary photos, AutoFocus is appropriate, and for close-up work, Manual Focus is appropriate, and for Macro work, moving the camera to achieve best focus is the way to go.
Focus peaking can be used to indicate when best focus can be achieved.
