Robin Wong: Olympus E-5 Review: Macro Shooting at Butterfly Park, Kuala Lumpur

Robin's a young photographer who came to my attention in his continuing and evolving street shots of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. He brings so much identity and nuance to scenes that I grew up with.
He's been testing the new Olympus E-5 with one of my yearned for, favourite lenses, the 50mm Zuiko Digital Macro. Brandon's let me try it from time to time - it's amazingly sharp but very leisurely in its autofocus because it has a long focus travel.
I thought the E-5 would be too rich in price for my taste, but with results like what he's showing, ahem........ Obviously, it's the photographer in Robin that made those shots sparkle.
