    Re: Anyone here with the 60mm macro

    Since macro was my main interest I got the 60mm macro, now we have our first grandchild. I have enough for that purpose with the 12-50 lens as well as the 14-54 on the E30 (but with flash indoors). If it's widest aperture you're after, then the 45 would be a natural choice at a very good price.

    Apart from being great for macro, it is also wearther proof! That to me is better to start with.

    seems sensible to me, I only buy kit when I need it (being a pensioner makes me a little more careful these days )

    Something to look forward to in the Spring maybe

    I meant the 45mm 1.8 lens not macro

    If you were from Kent you would be a 'Man o' Kent'!
    Depends on which side of the Medway you come from - anyone born to the West of the Medway is a "Kentish Man" (or Woman, of course) and to the East you become a "Man of Kent".

    As I come from the Kent / Sussex borders that makes me A Man of Kent (and proud of it, 'tothers are more or less from Essex! )

    Rooky, to answer your question re: 60mm vs 45mm for macro, assuming you mean the two Oly versions, in my view they are comparable except for the focal length.

    Both need to be handled with care if shooting woman or children as they can be a bit cruel because of the extreme sharpess / amount of detail resolved

    So you would be from 'Kentish Town' rather than from Kent? If you were from Kent you would be a 'Man o' Kent'!

    Nope - a Kentish Man me but I've tended to move around the country with my work, came back "darn sarf" when I retired (after 24 years living in Chester)

    You're not going to like it when I tell you mine only cost A$426 after cash back (considering the exchange rate). I couldn't believe it myself that they would offer the cash back on the new lens (till the end of January 2013), but I'm a happy chappy. It's a great lens for a reasonable price!
