Re: Macro vs close-up photography

Many people say that the notion of ‘macro’ (where the image of the subject on the sensor is at least as tall as the way it is in real life) is outmoded and close-up photography should be synonymous to macro photography.

I disagree.

If we accept the traditional meaning of macro photography, nothing replaces the M.Zuiko 60mm F/2,8.

However, to do close-up shots of insects and butterflies, the M.Zuiko 40-150mm F/2,8 (with the M.Zuiko MC-14 teleconverter) has replaced the M.Zuiko 60mm F/2,8 as my favourite lens :

Jean-Pierre, can you tell me whether you took those photos hand-held, or on a tripod? They're very nice, like the 'look' and rendition a lot.

Some of the coolest things in life are really, really small.
