    Maybe I will get one. I wait of your feedback. First I was at the store buying the 30mm Macro, cos I wanna do only still objects, products and food.

    But after I was not so concerned, and now I am reading again.

    Today I was testing my 17mm what it can do, to see what is really I need and not want.

    The 12-40 2.8 is still in my mind, and the Oly 60mm 2.8

    Olympus want £30 for a lens hood:eek: just ordered a rubber one from eBay for £5.50, at least if it casts a shadow from the camera mounted flash i can trim it down.

    The original hoods from Olympus are very costly. I order the hoods at Lazada for a fraction of that what Olympus want

    They sell at £360, Olympus have a £65 cash back which you get a couple of weeks later, it ends up costing £295.

    I was tempted to get the Sigma 60mm and raynox but it would have been nearly £250

    The Olympus recommended price is £430 so if they dont discount a bit more import duty and that could be your price

    That can be Mike.

    But imagine the income approximate of an average worker is just around 330 pound sterling. University degree 5 years experience.

    If I buy the 60mm is mostly cos I saw on Internet that it produces great images as a short tele as well.
