In the past I've used my 50-200 lens and a 1" extension tube to shoot macros but I finally broke down and bought my first macro lens, an Olympus M.Zuiko ED 60mm f2.8. On my E-M1 camera the lens functions as a 120mm [35mm equivalent] focal length and should make a nice portrait lens as well. I've just taken a few test shots with it and so far I'm pretty happy with it.
This shot of the Fred Hartman Bridge was one of my entries in the Bay Area Photo Club of Clear Lake's Honors Night assignment "After Dark". The image was well reviewed by the judges and was given a Gold award.
I work in the industrial distribution sector as a salesman for a master distributor of valves and fittings in Houston, TX. I am a member of the Bay Area Photo Club which meets at the Art Alliance Center at Clear Lake in Clear Lake Texas on Tuesday nights. I shoot with an Olympus E-3 and my favorite lens in my Zuiko 12-60.
