More Close Ups with the Panasonic 14-140

I'm shooting here with the Panasonic 14-140 on the Olympus E-M1.

This lens is the newer of the two Panasonic 14-140's.  Maximum aperture is F3.5 to F5.6. I purchased it in December and have found it to be great for closeups.  It has a 1:2 (35mm camera equivalent) maximum magnification.  That's very adequate for flowers and is accomplished at a focusing distance of about 20" when zoomed between 22 and 140mm.

I like the lens paired with the Olympus E-M1 because I am enjoying the focus bracketing feature that recently became available on the E-M1 with the latest firmware.  Images #2 and #3 were focus bracketed with up to 10 images and stacked with Zerene Stacker.)

Nothing particularly great here.  We've been having a patch of cold and dreary weather.  So between raindrops today I took about 10 minutes and walked around outside our home looking for things to snap.

All of these were taken at wide open aperture.
