Camera: Panasonic Lumix DMC GH1
Lens: Tamron SP 90mm f2.5 macro (52B)
Venue: Greenwich Park, London, England
Lighting: Metz 58 AF-1
Post-processing: Developed with Adobe Lightroom. HDR with Photomatix. Retouched with Adobe Photoshop.
Macro photography is just great. And you may not notice but I put these through some HDR processing to bring out a bit more dynamic range.
And with Micro Four Thirds, you can get cheap legacy macro lenses easily. I used to have a Canon FD 100 f4.0 macro which I liked a lot but I prefer this Tamron's bokeh (a complete irrational opinion :D). So I sold the Canon to finance the Tamron Sp 90mm f2.5 macro.
Mine is the older 52B version which I found to be built like a tank which is great on the hand. It comes with Adaptall2-FD mount adapter so I can easily fit it on my existing FD-MFT adapter.
Of course, stopping down to f/11 will need good light so I used my trusted but little used Metz 58 AF-1. The lighting is a bit harsh so next time I'll probably use a diffuser and mount the flash off camera. If only when it can stop raining,

Just received my Tamron 70-300 f4-5.6 Di LD Macro. This lens is very good value for money. The IQ is no where near those more expensive alternatives out there but it'good enough. Size and weight are decent as well.

Walking from my training center to Monument Station on a Tube Strike day with the E-P1 + 20mm is a very good idea. London is a very interesting city. On one side of the bridge, you can find calmness, on the other side, everything seems to be in a rush against time.
