    Default A macro len at least 120mm

    Hi I'm looking for a macro len at least 120mm for my Olympus DSLR camera.
    Any third party brand? 2nd hand will do.

    That one is not 1:1 reproduction ratio though.

    don't know of any in that focal length. 120mm in the 4/3 system is 240mm.

    There are some, but not many if you want a prime.

    Here is a link to all the OM macro lenses. Very good reading and a lot of facts.

    I doubt you can find many other third party (I regard OM lenses as 3:rd party on E-system cameras) macro that is of at least 120mm and macro as in 1:1 or larger magnification. Sigma has the 105mm and the 150mm, both 1:1 and costs over US$500 and US$800, so not a cheap alternativ. On the other hand, you will get AF and aperture control and a lens that is made for your camera and probably beats most of the OM lenses in performance on your dSLR.

    Heard from someone that MS Color is selling the Sigma 150mm macro lens at around S$730+ (Canon Mount). Do check it out but do not quote me if the price is incorrect.

    Regards.
