Re: macro choices: oly 60mm or PL45?

I traded my Panny 45 macro for the Oly 60mm macro as I prefer the more neutral (clinical) way the images look when shooting macro.

Likewise in the studio I am finding I much prefer the portraits its producing and its a cracking short telephoto lens for landscape and close bird work

BUT - that's down to my taste and the fact that with the EM-5 I don't need OIS

Look at the images others are producing as only you can really answer this question

If you are interested, there are a few of my 60mm macro lens images here http://imagesfromnature.foliopic.com/gallery/olympus-60mm-f2-8-macro-images-15725
