<<You say the Oly will get close but shades the subject, almost touching it. Is

Yes, that is correct. The Siggie achromatic CU diopter is 72mm and fits w/o
any step-up-down ring and evens the playing field some. The Nykon 5T is 62mm
and works well and fits directly on the PL 12-60. The PL is a tad faster on
the short end and seems to have a bit better bokeh and subject isolation.
It took me over 45 min to try and smooth the background a tad in one of
Marnie's shots with the MZ 12-100/4 from Bhutan and may not have done a perfect
Have to say I bet the MZ12-100 is a smidge sharper at 60mm than the 12-60. I
like both lenses and neither is perfect.
