For Close-up Watch Photography: There are two choices here: Olympus 60 mm F2.8 Macro or the Panasonic Leica 45 mm F2.8 Macro. I like the build quality of the Panasonic over the Olympus but I suspect the Olympus can be used from farther back to get the same image. If any of you have experience with both, I would appreciate your input.

Hi Bob, I also do watch photography, see my site below. I tried the Leica 45mm and found it to be very good and about as far as I would like go as regards focal length. I have no experience of the Oly macro, although you might prefer it if you hand-hold or if you want a little more DOF.
