I took the plunge last week and bought the Olympus 60mm Macro lens. It’s a great, sharp lens. Of course, 3 days after I bought it, it went on sale for $100 less. At $399, this lens is a tremendous bargain.
Luckily, Amazon refunded the difference after I sent them a short e-mail. Amazon’s customer service has been outstanding in the last year or so. They have really upped their game in responsiveness and helpfulness. This excellent service coupled with the “free” 2-day shipping as an Amazon Prime member is why they are now my first choice for photo equipment. I sometimes still go to the big New York shops for specialty equipment that Amazon doesn’t carry, but I always check Amazon first. No hassle customer service is worth its weight in gold.
