Default ELP-1 macro form my garden

Well it is the end of summer, so I though I would break out the 35mm 3.5 macro lens to take some short to remember how nice my garden was when winter comes.

It's not too far off base to say the better "normal" combination for a camera like the E-PL1 is a two-lens set like the 20mm f1.7 Panasonic and this 35mm macro lens from Olympus over the kit 14-42 lens if you don't mind a few more lens changes.

I have the kit lens from the ep1/2 with the metal base plate. It does a nice job actually for running around.

But for the macro, the 20mm and the 35mm is the better option. And as big fan of prime lens, the combo you mention do give some excellent results if you do not mind the lens changing.

I'm pretty much settled in at this point on a three lens setup of the DSLR 9-18 and 70-300 Zuikos and the Panasonic 20/1.7 until funds allow me to buy the 14-150 and 9-18 micro lenses. That leaves quite a stretch between 20 and 70mm that a 35 macro would fill very well if it was going to be an extended wait, but I have a feeling by Christmas at least the 14-150 will be in my bag.

Think that the 14-150 will be a pretty good lens. I got the 35mm very cheap, ebay of about 110 dollars. So it was a easy purchase.
