     I have their 100mm macro lens.  Picked it up in a used book store years 
ago.  Haven't made much use of it.

     As an aside, I got my evilBay E-500 camera late yesterday.  Put in a 
freshly charged battery and turned it on to see that it was working.  Turned it 
off and inserted the CF card from the broken one, then turned it on again.  
Everything worked fine, so I went about changing all the setings to my liking.  
Removed the Oly 14-42 lens and replaced it with the Tamron 35-80/2.8-3.8 from 
the broken camera.  This is a very nice lens for closeup/macro work, especially 
for flowers, having 330-degrees of focus ring rotation, 270-degrees of which is 
for 0.27 to 1 meter.  But, it's not well suited for general walk-around so I 
may swap it out for something else.
