Trying old lenses on the EM-5 and using my old canon 500 to set the aperture to f8 I used the sigma 400 f5.6 APO HSM macro to get this shot.

Its still a bit of a lump to hand-hold but the large MF ring and smooth operation make it a joy to manual focus. Sharpness & definition is pretty good too, not bad for a 299 lens.

(This shot was cropped by about 45% then resized for web)
