Thinking of buying the 50mm zuiko macro but before doing so, am interested in hearing from anybody who has used it on the EM 5.

Yes, I use it with my EM-5. I agree with the comments here. It can produce good results, but I wouldn't buy it in preference to a dedicated M43 lens. Other posters have told you why. I use mine because I already had it for my L1.

The only justification for buying it would be if you saw a copy that's really cheap. btw I assume you don't already have the adapter; this would be an added expense.
