My post didn't come to my inbox, and I can't seem to reach the current 
archives, so I will forward it to the LUG and try again.

I received a 50/2.0 Macro lens from B&H yesterday, and slipped it on the 
old E-1 this morning to see how it functioned as a daily walk-around 
lens.? I sought a wide variety of subjects to get a feel for its 
focusing and resolution, from treetops and clouds to my utility meter.? 
With a breeze blowing, and several small subjects, it took a little 
while to get used to its focusing habits, but, as you will see from the 
utility meter, resolution is very good.

A colorful fly:

Common Fleabane:

Small, colorful Iris:

Tree tops and clouds:

Resolution test:

I'm looking forward to the butterflies with this lens.
