Thank you, Aaron. All were taken handheld with the camera in manual focus mode, moving the camera to achieve focus. This is the same technique I used with the Canon gear, but it is easier with the OM-D. Probably most important is that the gear is so much lighter and easier to handle, but the Olympus IBIS certainly helps also, as does the greater depth of field with m43. And I always use fill flash, which helps to freeze motion.
I experimented with tripods and macro adjustment plates for macro work, but found that for me, hand held was much more successful. Most of my subjects will not stay in place long enough to use a tripod.
The quality of the Olympus 60mm f/2.8 lens on the OM-D rivals or exceeds even the Canon 180mm f/3.5 on a 1D, which I had considered to be the ultimate macro tool. Thinking back, though, the Canon really was quite an ungainly beast to handle.
