    Here's the lens:

    olympus50mmmacro.

    Very compact! On the adapter, it's only 1/8" longer than my old Micro-Nikkor 55mm lens by itself!

    It seems to have some nice, snappy contrast.

    olympus-50mm.

    I might just be able to give that upcoming Zeiss Touit 50mm macro a pass! :cool:

    Here's another typical shot I do with this type of lens:

    olympus-50mm-2.

    I like the 6-pointed sun star. Not so crazy about the blue "ghost" blob. (My Micro-Nikkor 55mm and Leitz 60mm macros also do this.)

    Here it is at the closest focus distance, doing 1:2:

    olympus-50mm-3.

    Olympus made pretty good macros, all macro lenses are not created equal. I think that it is of Tessar family. Zeiss macros have been planars and they have much better performance wide open. Probably irrelevant.

    Wow! I'm a new NEX owner... I just purchased a zuiko 50mm macro on eBay. I'm now even more excited about playing with the lens when it arrives. I really like your photos.

    The 50mm f/3.5 is also a planar design.

    With Techart PRO adapter, It seems like you can get just a little bit closer ;)

    DSC04179.
    After looking at this, it seems I have a bit of dust on my sensor. :mad:
