Re: Easy macro on the cheap

The 60mm is bulkier, and focuses very slowly in low light indoors. I had mine at a concert last week and got frustrated; the f2.8 zooms focus much more rapidly, with less (or no) hunting.

However, for things like insects that extra 100mm or so of space makes all the difference re getting an image or not.

FWIW, I also agree that 60mm isn't a particularly generally useful focal length, so have been using the 12-50 f3.5-6.3 on the GM5 a bit more lately. That also focuses slowly and AF at macro distances is basically worthless, but the range is useful and it's light, though bulky. I wonder how close the 12-45 Pro focuses...
