    Hello from Italy, I am happy possessor of EPM1, ptep06, Subsee +10 and +5, I just bought the 60mm, what do you advise me how to set up? generally used 0.19- 0.4 or 0:19-infinite?, in general settings that you have? which benefits can I get? thanks

    I usually have the focus limiting switch on full range so I can take full fish portraits as well as small critters on the same dive. If it is a macro only site reducing the range speeds up focussing and reduces "hunting", but the 60mm is pretty quick anyway.

    I own this camera too. I have the 60mm, and use it 0.19-inf all the time. To get more speed focusing I use a Sola 500 as focus light. Because this camera focuses by contrast so it'll help you a lot. You can check my photos with this lens https://www.flickr.com/#/photos/10588577@N05/
