Tokina 100mm macro with speed booster vs 60mm macro


I currently have a ff Tokina 100mm macro lens with speed booster that I use for some macro fun with my EM5ii.  However, I am considering selling that lens to get the native Olympus 60mm macro.

I was wondering if anyone has used both to give a comparison.

Pros for keeping the Tokina:

1. Bigger working distance

2. Great optics

3. Already have the lens:)


1. No AF

Pros for getting the 60mm:

1. AF

2. Smaller/lighter

3. can be used with automated stacking function for macro.


1. Considerably less working distance.

2. Good optics from what I have read but not sure if its as good as the Tokina?

Any help would be appreciated!
