Hi everyone, I state that I am not an expert! I use the camera manually to document my work and informing myself these are the recommended settings for the shots in my field, ISO 100/200, f22, 1/125-250, macro lens with fixed focal length as close as possible to 100mm and ring or twin flash.  This is my setup, Olympus OMD E-M1 Mark II, Olympus macro 60mm, Metz 15 MS-1 flash.  Now we come to the problem, I have set the flash to work in TTL with my Olympus but the problem is that the photos are...

Hi everyone! I am a beauty photographer, and I take photos of my own makeup. I have an Olympus PEN EPL8. Typically I take photos of my eyeshadow, but occasionally I take photos of my entire face or parts of it. Here is an example of what I currently do: I am posting on this forum because I am interested in a macro lens for sharper, more detailed images. I like my current quality (using a 14-42mm IIR Black lens), but if I get closer, I lose quality. I am torn between the M.Zuiko 60mm or 30mm....

Hi, we have an EM5 Mk2 with an Olympus 60mm f2.8, and we use it to do a lot of macro photography of miniature orchids. This is close work, but we light them with a flash to get the best effect. Some examples here: https://www.pumpkinbeth.com/2018/08/miniatureorchids/ We're using a hand-held Godox TT350 and a V860ii flash units, and control them with an X1T remote trigger. Most of the time this works pretty well, but we've found that when the flash is really close to the trigger unit (less...

Had a DCM-GF2 for many years, which allowed me to move away from point and shoot, but never really got serious about photography. Until now that is, as I just got a new Panasonic GX9. I never shot macro before, so I am thinking about getting a macro lens as well. Panasonic has the 30 mm and 45 mm macros, but I think the Olympus 60 mm macro might work best for me, as i can't see myself pointing the camera millimetres from the subject.  I have been reading about the OIS/IBIS issues when mix and...

Has anyone used the Oly 60 mm macro with an extension tube and the MC-14? If so, what were the results? --Bikerguy

I have the Olympus 60/2.8 macro lens, which many people say is a very sharp lens.  However, at infinity, the results I get are all but sharp, and I get a distinct pattern that looks like camera shake:  This is a crop from a corner.  The image was taken at 1/100s with image stabilization on, yet it displays a sort of double pattern that is typical of camera shake.  Other parts of the image are sharp instead; below, I insert the complete image.  This is just a photo I took for testing.  What...

Hi all, My wife does a lot of macro photography. In particular, she does some bug photos, and some photographs of plants, such a miniature orchids. We have the superb 60mm Oly f2.8 macro, and it's wonderful, but we're starting to get to the point where she wants to get even closer to subjects, and are finding that we'd like something with more magnification and (potentially) a shorter focal length. Here's a couple of sample pictures she's taken with the lens so far: Hoverfly:...

Hi, I have found a lens I didn't know I had - the 35mm Olympus Macro for a non micro 4/3, with an adapter for micro 4/3. Really! It dates from a time when I really didn't understand about the effects of the sensor size and cropping on my Panasonic Lumix G3. Since then I have bought the 60mm f2.8. Then I moved to full frame for a few years, but I'm picking up the pieces with micro 4/3 again. I am now aware that the 35mm will effectively be 70mm on my Lumix, not a lot different to the 60mm I...

Hey ho, can the Olympus 60mm f2.8 Macro can be used with the EC-14 tele converter? If yes, what does it mean? Can the max. distance between object and lens, that is necessary to achieve 1:1 magnification, be enlarged? From now around 8 inches to 11 inches? Greets, ante

Is this a psychology test? I'm not sure but I put the question to you.  I already have a silver/black EM-1 and silver Olympus 12mm, 17mm, and 45mm Zuiko lenses. So I'm a silver on silver kinda pho-tog.   The Pen-F is just so dreamy in either silver or black.  Silver is retro; Black is stealth.  Someone I heard said that the patina on the black looks better over time.  Any thoughts? So which one are you getting?
