I've finally picked up the Olympus 60mm f2.8 macro lens and will be diving with it for the first time this weekend. I need some tips please!
Testing around the house last night, the lens can be slow to focus and hunts quite a bit in low light situations. I use a red focus light at night since I'll be shooting mandarinfish which can be skittish with brighter white light and don't allow a lot of time to get the focus right. I realize I can prefocus but that is tough to get right with a rapidly moving subject. Is there anything I can do to improve autofocus speed in this situation?
I also notice that even with the focus limiter switch set to the closest range (0.19 - 0.4 m), once it loses focus, the lens will hunt through its full range out to infinity, which doesn't seem right.
BTW I'm using an OM-D EM-5, which focuses very fast with the 12-50mm lens in macro mode under the same conditions.
