I received a 50/2.0 Macro lens from B&H yesterday, and slipped it on the old E-1 this morning to see how it functioned as a daily walk-around lens.  I sought a wide variety of subjects to get a feel for its focusing and resolution, from treetops and clouds to my utility meter.  With a breeze blowing, and several small subjects, it took a little while to get used to its focusing habits, but, as you will see from the utility meter, resolution is very good.

Small, colorful Iris:


Tree tops and clouds:


Resolution test:

I'm looking forward to the butterflies with this lens.
