Hi Gordon, thanks for the reply.
I've been watching the forums for a while but now I'll mix it up a little.
From what your telling me it seems to be an impressive lens and I don't think I've read a single bad review on this lens either, however the point that a particular reviewer on some website titled 'photodo.com' was making is that in principle if a macro lens isn't a 1:1 lens than it doesn't pass the basic prerequisite that qualifies it to be a true macro lens.
Heres the link for anyone who's interested in reading- http://www.photodo.com/topic_135.html
I guess that is the question, Is any lens possessing a ratio other than 1:1
a true macro lens and why?
Judging by photo samples I've seen of what this zuiko 50mm f2 lens can do I'm impressed but I'm left wondering if the zuiko 35mm f3.5 lens despite being slower and off lesser quality does actually possess better macro capabilities.
Anyones ideas appreciated, thanks.
