This one looks very strong and interesting subjects! Would you mind to share any raw crops?

Cheers,


Kelly.

Number four reminds one of a horse's eye. Smile

If you were to compare this one to the Yashinon 60mm, what would be your assessment?

well, these two are different critters...Yashinon is a preset and goes to 1:1 magnification without tubes, while Oly is automatic diaphragm and goes to 1:2 magnification.
as for results, both give great results. one thing i realised while working on these photos is that Oly gives you photos that need very,very little correction of contrast or color, same as it's big brother 90mm macro.

Very good results. How this one compares with 3,5/50mm?
I do already love the f/3,5 version...

well, 50mm/3.5 is very good lens on it's own, but 50mm/2 is something else. it's bigger, faster, more light-gathering capable (red rose and portrait of my Grandma were indoors at f2, available light only)

Too expensive like its elder 90mm. Both are great lenses. Perhaps one day with luck...

This is supposedly the fastest "macro" lens, at least the faster among other competitors 50mm "macros".

Very nice, detailed, colorful pics.

Absolutely no doubt ; But photography is a game for me, when lenses are too expensive it becomes serious and I have no fun anymore (my way, of course)
