Olympus ZD 50mm macro – flowers with Olympus Ring Flash

Written by Gary on October 16th, 2008

What else to do on a lovely sunny Spring morning with not much wind (wind is BAD for macro shots!), than to take a wander and see what you can find….


and, attaching the Olympus EC-20 2x teleconverter allows 1:1 macro, such as these Mt Fuji cherry tree blossom with tiny Argentinian ant which have now created one of the biggest ant super-colonies in the world, here in Melbourne.

    the macro is one of my favourite lenses, hopefully Olympus will make an even better SWD version with focal range limiter.
