Probably a short macro (if any)

Now looking for a killer macro lens specifically for food photography. Would love to hear your opinions and suggestions

I've done some nice food photography with the Panasonic 20mm f/1.7.  I've tried using the Olympus 60mm f/2.8 macro, but it's a little long for most of my uses when it comes to food.  If you must have macro, I'd say the Panasonic/Leica 45mm f/2.8 is a better choice, though as mentioned elsewhere in this thread, you may not need 1:1 for food photography.

A photograph is a creative interpretation of reality.
