I really like those shots. They cover a nice range of pastel colors, and they look super good on my monitor.

Can't say I haven't done that myself once or three times. Nice job.

The 12-50 isn't a half-bad macro lens. It'd help if you had just over one more stop to f4 or a little more reach. f4 or wider is about where the 35-100mm f2.8 does well with closeups. f5-6-8 works too, but only in the longer focal length ranges like 150-250mm using the 75-300 M. Zuiko with an extension tube, or the lens by itself with the 2X digital TC.

Come to think of it, the digital TC while using the macro mode with the 12-50 might be worth trying. In macro mode that lens defaults to 43mm, so you'd wind up at 86mm f6. You should give it a try.
