Hi another question.....

I have an Epm1, I am thinking about getting the Panasonic Lecia 45mm. Its obviously a lot of money by the time you add a port to the cost of the lens. Is the quality of the 45mm pan lens much better than the oly kit lens?
Would I be better off just getting a threaded macro wet lens to add to the housing?? :lol:
Any other ideas would be good to hear or example pics if anyone has both lenses.

Big difference in image quality between the two lenses and the 45 is a true macro that goes to 1:1 (17.3X13mm on the M43 cameras). This is a another case of you get what you pay for.

Thanks Phil,
I thought as much but it's a lot of money to spend if there is not a big difference so I wanted to ask the question.
