  • Summary: With many people utilising manual focus and using a rocking technique for macro-photography, the restrictions of this lens and its system would soon become exasperating although for table-top use the lens is adequate. However, with a reproduction ratio of only 1:2 it is not a true macro lens. On the 2x crop factor of the 4/3rds system, it would be far better utilised as a portraiture lens.
  • Pros: Good build quality, Good optically, although peaks early for a ‘macro’.
  • Cons: Focussing system is atrocious., Only 1:2 reproduction ratio, not true macro., Cheaper alternatives with better performance on their way.
