Nice shot Jorden! I gave the 60 a try but was so frustrated watching it try to focus for as many as 6 back-and-forth cycles that I wound up returning mine (XE-1,latest firmware).
I tried all of the focus modes but just couldn't get good results indoors.
Any tips for those thinking about this lens?
When did you use the 60? Was the firmware in the lens updated too? From what I understand, the more recent lens firmware updates help it quite a bit. It's still slow...not a speed demon focuser for sure, and I've had it hunt from time to time, but for the most part it's done quite well. Of course, you need to be in macro mode to have any hope of locking focus on very close items, but I found it mostly locks just fine on medium distance stuff as long as there's contrast.
Of course, when I need real focusing speed, I put down my X-E1 and grab my OM-D with 75/1.8, 60/2.8 macro or 35-100/2.8.
