Re: No Longer My Go-To Macro

Hey, thanks for replying, but keep in mind that's a very old comment. I'd say my small-object shooting since then has been split equally between the two, depending on the setting.

I take the 60mm mostly outside when shooting garden stuff for my girlfriend, the garden writer -- except when it involves bees and wasps, which are valuable pollinator subjects.

I use the 40-150mm PRO on food and product on-site shoots because I need the flexibility a zoom lens offers and the lighting setups usually put me at such a distance from the subject that I need the longer focal length as well as the zoom movement.

Primes are great when you can zoom with your feet; fast zooms are essential in tight studio/client spaces. I can't say enough good things about the original trio of M.Zuiko f/2.8 PRO zooms as journeyman commercial lenses. Although the 60mm is always in the bag, just to be safe.
