    Portraits and macros of larger subjects for me. I regularly take macros of fishes in their tanks for my friend. There were times when some of the fishes were too large and I could not move back far enough due to space constraints in the shop. The 35mm would sure come in handy in such situations.

    yo! just got the 35mm today @ $367 with gst cash payment CP.

    verdict: ok only not fantastic. slow auto focus in low light. 1:1 macro is only at 3 or 4 cm. most practical working distance is at magification 1:2 or 1:3. can use for street shoot at 1:4

    as for teh 18-180mm, guy at CP say not out yet and have no idea when it's coming.

    maybe you will like to try abstract shots. something like focusing at a corner object while blurring the background. the wider angle than 50mm should be good in this area. the lens quality should be almost as good as 50mm.




    the hunting problem should be more or less prevalent in zuiko macro lens due to the wider range involved.

    Interested to get this lens. When you mentioned "ok only", were you refering to the quality of the images produced or just wrt the AF and macro working distance?

    It would be great if you can share more of your experience with this lens.

    Thanx!

    image quality is very good. typical of ZD lenses.
    the "ok only" comment is referring to the AF and working distance.
