    We had the 15mm f8 and 60mm macro both from Olympus in yesterday and they are both great!

    The 15mm is literaly the size of a body cap and looks/feels very well made. The lens itself is small and there is a lever for focus to infinity and close up. We are selling it for £69.99 which I think is steep. I would be interested to see what it is selling for in the US.

    The 60mm Macro is small, light & super sharp! It has a 4 position switch for full control and work brilliantly for both Macro and portrait. From image examples i have seen this macro is going to be a stunner!!!

    Thanks Andy, the price for the 15mm does seem a bit steep. I don't know if I'd buy either, but the 15mm is a clever invention. So many times I have packed my lenses away when travelling only to see a shot I'd like to take. I'd miss the shot because I couldn't be bothered to unpack a lens but with this lens cap, well I would just need to grab the camera body with this lens cap attached for travellng. £40-50 seems a more reasonable price. Have a word with your boss! :wink:

    I have the 60mm on the way to me and am quite excited for a macro binge. The lens cap thingie is cute. When the price drops a bit, I may reconsider. I'd be willing to spend $50.

    I'm unhappy with the British government for all sort of reasons , but even I won't hold them responsible for Olympus' £-per-$ pricing policy :smile:
