Having a play with my 'new' Helios 44-2 on the EM1 Mk2.

A low down shot at arms length with a guess of the focus point. It's not the getting down, it's the getting up again

Cropped and uncropped images of a beetle*. I have been pleased and impressed by the CZ 100mm f2 Milvus macro lens. The bar at upper left in the uncropped image is a hand-held LED light. Pany GX8 behind the Zeiss macro.

*Two different image files from the same sequence. After processing in Sharpen AI I could not undo the cropping of the first image file.

Nursery web spider. Kept it temporarily for this photo, then released it outside in plants good for building its nursery.

$100 brand new, how could the Olympus 40~150mm F4-5.6 possibly be any good? But I couldn't resist the price. This is @ 150mm, significantly cropped.

Olympus 17mm f/1.8 M.Zuiko Digital Review It is a pity that this lens has no dust and splash protection. But I find it very useful in the system.

MFT users consider this:

1) SFAIK the widest rectilinear lens currently available for MFT is the Panasonic 7~14mm f4.0 (14mm FF FOV at the widest setting).

2) The widest rectilinear prime for MFT is the Laowa 7.5mm f2.0, recently released in a new mount with an auto-aperture. (15mm FF FOV)

HOW ABOUT: A high-quality 5mm rectilinear, fix-focused @ one foot, single aperture = f5.6. According to several DOF calculators I tried, the focus range would be 6 inches to infinity. This would be a body-cap lens, no controls, no diaphragm, no focusing mechanism. 10mm FF FOV. If Irix or Laowa offered crowd-sourcing for the project, provided the lens were "high quality" (=best IQ possible within the parameters given, as rectilinear as possible - no fish eye - and as sharp as possible) I would go for it.

Congratulations on your purchase. Its price-quality ratio is very good. I would buy one too, but I already have a body from the FT system and it's good too.

A 5mm rectilinear lens would have a huge bulbous front element, it would be a rather unwieldy "body cap!"

Have you seen a Laowa 4mm f2.8 circular fish-eye lens?
