Great FL to work with (better than 50mm on crop IMO), and is sharper/less artifacts at f/1.4 than the Canon 28 at f/1.8

And for e-peen factor, the filter size is bigger. 62mm prime > 58mm

I'll consider that if I can find a decently priced used one. Figure a used one will focus correctly or at least within what a little MA can fix.

If you buy from POTN, usually the people are OCD enough to have sent their lenses into Sigma for calibration if AF is off.

Yeah, so I should be safe when it comes to that. 30mm would be the perfect FL for shooting pit road from on top of the pit box as well. Can't wait for Charlotte, Phoenix, and Miami!

Hey guys

Long time snooper first time poster in this thread. Figured I'd start by listing my meh gear. Hope to be able to contribute in the future, still a little new to the hobby

Olympus Evolt E620 12.3MP with IS
14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 Zuiko Lens and 40-150mm f/4.0-5.6 Zuiko Lens.
70-300mm telephoto (600mm equiv.) f/4.0-5.6 Zuiko lens
Hoya UV filters and hoods.
IR remote
cabled shutter release remote.
Olympus FL-36R Electronic Flash/Speedlight
Velbon Tripod.

Canon PS ELPH 300

So with that I only have one question. I'm looking for a good prime lens for this body, or maybe a macro lens. Anyone know where I can find a good deal on an Olympus lens?

There are 2 macros available, the 50mm f2 macro and the 35mm f3.5 macro. If it isn't out of your price range, the 50mm is pretty much regarded as the best lens Olympus makes.

Other than that, there are 3 more primes, the 25mm f2.8 pancake (don't buy this unless you need ultra lightweight), and the 150mm f2 and 300mm f2.8, both of which are super high grade, and probably way out of your budget.

50mm f2 for $399 at Adorama

By the way, how is the 70-300? I just noticed it's on sale, and that never happens for Olympus stuff.

hey thanks! I'll check out the 50mm F2 for sure!

The 70-300 isn't too bad. Images are nice and sharp if you have enough light. AF is quite quick A good lens at that price point! I got mine on sale for 299 here in Canada. I find at 300 a tripod is a must, but that may be the IS in the camera isn't all that great. A good buy if you get it at a good price.

Hmmm, thanks. I looked around a bit, and it seems to be available for around 300 used, so I think I'll pass for now. It's definitely on my future purchase list though.

50mm f2 macro review <- Some info
