    After a few days, I have to admit that the OLYMPUS M.60mm F2.8 Macro is a wonderful lens. It is fast enough, sharp and very great to handle. The photos you will see are handheld.

    Even at low light it performance superb.

    The image was taken yesterday at around 18.30, at this time it is dark in Thailand. It was far away (I guess about 40 meters) and upwards.


    Also, to do close-ups, it is great. Flash is recommended. Here I used the camera build in flash.

    For indoors, it is a bit narrow but to get snaps of people are no Problems at all. The following shot was taken about 1,5 meters away. Camera build in flash was used.

    To summarize my feelings about this lens: WOW!
