Some Butterflies with the Olympus E-P5

I have the Olympus E-P5 in my possession for review at the moment, and on Friday, I had a chance to give it a great workout in the macro arena.  I took it to Franklin Park Conservatory to get some butterfly shots, and the camera performed well.  I used the pop-up flash for lighting (I have found little pop-up flashes to be well suited to macro use, though of limited use for other things) and things worked quite well.  I’ll have my full E-P5 review coming soon.  For now, take a look at some pictures!

    Insanely beautiful images. I wish that 60mm macro fit into my budget right now. I love that lens.

    Nice images! I’ve been quite pleased with results from 60mm macro on the E-M5 & E-PL5. Haven’t been to the Franklin in a number of years. Which section is the butterfly exhibit in? Always enjoy your blog and seeing familiar locations around the Columbus area. Looking forward to your review of the E-P5.

    Great set of images. Your site is one of the few that I will continue to visit from time to time. Not only excellent and comprehensive reviews, but an excellent portfolio to match.

    Regards,

    Hi, nice pictures. may I ask what the distance was or in other words what the ratio was when you took these pitures. I have just bought this lens and I am courious how to use it for insects because the focal distance at 1:1 is rather close.
