From the new glass
 
Man, this guy is VERY good! I'm REALLY glad I got it. These are pretty much SOOC.

Wide angle, freehand

Not as close as I could get but this is freehand on a breezy morning!

Nice! When I looked at the exif of the "On the edge" shots that said 50mm I figured those were the Sigma. Looks like a quality macro lens.

I'm very please with it, Ted. I was JUST about to spring for a Zuiko 35mm macro when I spotted this at a GREAT price.

WOW - Great shots you will love that lens and looks like you have gotten used to it already!

Good job...I love shooting macros. I have the 50 Zuiko digital and love it.

Thanks, Jim. I'm pretty close to having it down but it's a little different than either of my f2.8 lenses. I *do* really like it, though!

:) Yes, Looks like you bought a keeper there Gary. I was not familiar with that lens. The ZD 35mm macro is one of the lens on my wish list. I'll have to keep that sigma in mind.

I think the Sigma & I have a long relationship ahead of us. :) I almost snagged the ZD 35mm that was up on 3/4s but saw this at the last minute and went for it. I'm glad I did. I think it will be much more versatile than the 35mm.

Those are looking very good Gary, congratulations with your new lens.
I know you have also the 14-54, is possible to do some pictures to see the difference between the 14-54 and your new Sigma?
