Sorry for the confusion $500 is pretty much the top-end of my per-lens budget right now, so L-glass (other than possibly the f/4L 70-200mm non-IS...future telephoto purchase maybe) isn't even in my price range. What makes the 60mm more attractive is that I can get it used for around $300-ish and still get 1:1 magnification.

ISO 200, f/5.6, 1/50s shutter. Hand held (stabilised on surface).
In retrospect, should have stopped down to f/11 or so, but I was in a hurry to take the shot before it flew away, and wanted to keep the shutter speed up. Turned out pretty decent though, IMO.

How close did you get with the PL 45mm, and does it block light/flash(assuming your m43 has flash).
