Good for portraits
16

I've long desired the Olympus 50mm f2.0 not only for macro work, but it's my preferred portrait length. So it can serve as a double duty lens. I finally found a mint condition one at KEH.com for less than $150USD. Long time DPR visitors know this is the lens used for reviews of 4/3 cameras. Portrait work I'm used to, but it's been about 30 years since I've used true macro equipment. (So I end up with a macro that looks like a portrait? LOL) Below are some examples as I'm getting to know the lens.
