  1. I use it mainly to photograph the flowers of orchids that I grow. As you say, this lens is excellent for its relatively modest price.

  2. Good review, but w/emphasis on non-macro images, for a macro lens, seems a bit tilted. Have the lens and had to get the lens hood — what a bother! Look forward to the macro flash video.

  3. Great video
    Can you do a comparison video on the 30mm and the 60mm
    More of the focus stacking and the Macro shots, please

    Regards, Rick

  4. Thanks for your videos. Appreciate your perspective, artistic work and craftsmanship. It is wonderful to see photos from Finland, too! (OK, so this time some from Scotland, also.)
    As a side note, might I suggest you call your dragon cup a dragon flagon? (Gleaned from an old Danny Kaye film.)

  5. Looking forward to the flash tutorial. I was thinking of one of these but put it off my list due to the rated output being very low.

  6. This lens is a bargain! I bought it for reproduction work and found myself using it as a "standard" lens for nature photography. Image quality is great, even at 3.5, nothing to complain about.

  7. I'm currently using em10 markiii and have a couple lenses, looking to buy either a body or a lenses, which would you recommend?

  8. I have buy this lens. I have need a Macro with AF for my Lumix.

    But the sharp is realy good for this lens

  9. Another excellent vlog I have yet to use my 30mm f1:3.5 macro but the idea using the focus stack facility sounds like it is worth exploring 😊thank you once again for posting I really enjoyed viewing your travel shots👍🏻

  10. Have you done a video on the 60mm f2.8 macro? I saw that you used it in the video for macro flashes, but can't seem to find anything else. Your videos have gotten me very excited about taking photos again. Thanks!

  11. I recently purchased the OMD E-M10 Mark III with 14-42 and 40-150 lenses. I want to add a macro lens to my camera. Thank you for the review; it was most helpful. And I agree with you about the need for an included lens hood.

  12. I bought this lens too. I was on a bit of a tight budget at the time and I wanted to get a standard lens but was really drawn to macro as well. It was my best option at the time and I've never regretted buying this over the 60mm. I don't shoot bugs so focusing really close won't scare anything away for me.
