I wanted to note that this was the premier M.Zuiko macro lens when I purchased it. Now that I have my 40-150 f2.8 PRO, however, I really haven't taken this 60mm lens out of the bag much. The 40-150 handles the insect & Flower outdoor close-ups better than the 60, since I can stand back farther and focus easier with the bigger lens. That really comes in handy with bees & spiders.

Hello John,

I have a similar experience with my Panasonic 45mm f/2.8 macro: I like being able to stand farther back with my 45-150mm for flowers and insects:

So, It's one less lens to carry when hiking!

On a recent trip I used that lens almost exclusively; photographs here:
