Default Can you spot Jupiter?

It's in this image, moon and Jupiter on November 1, captured with the E-M5 and 75-300mm, zoomed to 300mm and slightly cropped.

Picked up the 60mm f2.8 Macro this evening. Jeez. Beautiful. The manual focus ring is ultra-smooth and the throw is very long. This is as good as it gets besides the 12mm f2 if you like manually focusing. It's actually a very pleasant experience with this lens. I still prefer AF and like the various distance limiting options.

Jupiter appears to be the gray dot up above the left side of the moon at the top of the frame.

Glad your initial reaction to the 60mm macro is a positive one.

.......TOLD'cha!

For the rest of the m43 world, I saw, held, mounted to an E-M5 and snapped off a couple shots 2-weeks ago and have been 'slobberin since'.

So for the first time ever, I did all those things before Greg.......... BUT! Greg owns one and I don't; that is all that counts.

Surely glad you like it Greg, now some images this weekend, please.

Bob, does Arlington Camera have to clean the slobber off the glass counter tops after you leave? :-)

James, I've spent enough $$$$ there over the past 30-years that it is tolerated.
