i love 50 macro f2, but i think it is not only for macro and portraits, it is for the night photografy too: street and detail of architecture without tripod.
with e510 in 800 iso, is1, and about 1/20 or 1/25 -f2. i will show some photos :) .
bye Marco

My favorites were the pictures 1, 4 and 5. Fish on photo 4 looks so sharp! Very nice! Photo 5 makes it look like you are a stalker! :)

Gorgeous shot of the Coliseum!

Marco, do you have a website that's accessible to the public to look at your photos?

yes Prinz, no tripod, i wrote about.
800 iso, is1, f2, 1/20-1/25, i work in M. i change time depend about the situation,about light. if it's very dark, i use 1/10-1/15.
i use 2 second timer, or multi shoot it is about no "micro moved".

Hi Marco,

thanks! What camera do you use? My experience with my E-510 and the 50mm is, that the AF does not do it's job very well. How did you focus?

Hi Prinz, i use e510, it dosn't have the best af of the world :D , it is not very fast. i have problem only if i focus on a place that is black and poor of light, in that situations i can use flash like "af illuminator", or i focus in a place where is light.
an example, i focus on base of statue (there is light) not at the statue (no light). statue an base are in the same linee, so not problem in dof.
i have tha same problem with kit lens, because e510 dosn't has a special af, but for my use is good ( i don't make sport photo).
i use afs (af single) center point.
at the end it is not really a big problem for me.

This one is not a macro shot, but I like the bokeh, especially the soft background:
