I did finally got the 55m but I hate extension tubes, I will keep take macro photo with Olympus. Unfortunately 55mm has a long minimum focal distance

Have used the 1.8/55 for some years now. Sharp and contrasty only let down by some longitudinal chromatic aberration (no issue unless into astrophotography however).

Do now and then wish for a somewhat better close focusing distance but can not remember that stopping me from getting the images - just back off slightly. So getting a macro lens for closer focus would not have made much difference in my case.

This is one of those lenses which could have been my only one, pretty versatile.

Have fun with the new lens!
