Digital Moments, Garden Macros

'A quick macro session in the garden with the M.Zuiko Digital ED 60mm f/2.8 Macro on the E-P5'

A close-up session with lenses begged or borrowed, fitted, or adapted (if it is a legacy manual focus lens), to my Olympus E-P5. I only have a very short session with the lens and the only possibility then was to zero in on one of the potted plants in the makeshift garden. As with the other quick take sessions, there was nothing technical about these shots, except that they were all taken wide open.

M.Zuiko Digital ED 60mm 1:2.8 Macro

The Olympus M.Zuiko 60mm f/2.8 macro lens is fairly lightweight (weighs in at 185g), and has a fixed focal length the equivalent of a 120mm lens on a 35mm film camera. It is of dust-proof and splash-proof construction, and its design incorporates 13 elements in 10 groups and uses ED (Extra-low Dispersion), HR (High Refractive index) and E-HR (Extra-High Refractive index) glass.

The lens is also equipped with a high-speed Imager AF system. Imager AF is acquired by way of contrast detection and generally focuses on the subject nearest the lens. This lens is designed for everyday shooting with an emphasis on macro photography.

A small dial on the lens allows it to be operated in either traditional or macro mode. All said and done, this 60mm macro is easy and fun to use. Looking forward to another session soon.
