Hey guys/gals!

I've been wanting to ge t into close focus/wide angle photography for a fe w months now. I love the images people are coming out with where a macro subject has the beautiful b lue water background with the sun. AH-mazing.

I wondered if anyone could recommend a goo d lens for these types of shots for the olympus OM -D em5 mii? I can't seem to find too much info on mirrorless cameras and this technique.

You seem to be a bit harsh and out of line Joao. For your own information, should do some reading on Wet lenses, no question they have better corner sharpness than a fisheye with a dome.

I would not ever think of replacing your friend David, he is one amazing person, met him on the Bilikiki in the Solomons early 90\'s

Still trying to figure out your shown hostility but all is fine with me. Have a good day.

You continue!!!!! Are you a fool or just another mad man? Do you know who I am? Still you continue to preach and try to teach me lessons? What an arrogance! And worst, lack of education!
Worst, nothing to show for yourself!
I got upset because I am fed up with YOUR kind of people, make statements like \'I know it all\', when they know absolutely nothing!
The BEST equipment is the one that works for you! From a simple mobile phone to an Hasselblad Camera! You can give advise, but NOT in the terms you used!
I am brutal, I know, but do NOT have age or status to put up with foolish people! I am so sorry!

For close focus WA, corner sharpness is important and it doesn\'t get any better than going to a Wet lens like the WWL-1
How can you make such a statement? and twice? Where are your photos to show? \"Doesn\'t get any better\"? Maybe you should work for National Geographic and replace my Friend David Doubilet!...

Such an irresponsibility! And arrogance!

Descriptionhi Miranda, can you tell which housing do you use?
For many years, I have been using a SIGMA 28mm f1.8 EX ASP DG Macro with great results! Mine is with a Nikon Mount, but I believe it\'s available for Olympus! I would surely give it a try, to start with. There are other options, but none so easy...
Thank you so much, I will look into it. I really like SIGMA lenses. Glad to hear you\'ve had some great experiences with it!
Indeed! Have a look: http://www.pbase.com/image/165337589 http://www.pbase.com/jdrpc/image/160735413
