Excerpt: I bought this as a way to try out a new prime lens, buying it used. The lens arrived quickly after ordering it. (Adorama is one of the best online dealers I've dealt with). The lens itself is in mint condition, works like it is brand new.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight
Excerpt: I just got this lens. Work well very clear pictures. I had read that it searches when focusing. Makes-Agrinding noise. It did that for me. This seemed to occur when the object is dark or with no clearly define edges. I always have used single point focusing. I tried multipoint focusing .
Excerpt: If you have a strong interest in close-up photography, and you like to shoot portraits, then this is a must-have lens for the Olympus E-System....I cannot recommend it highly enough. With one caveat, as detailed below. I have been shooting close-ups for more than 35 years.
Pros: Good Price, Great Contrast and Color, Nice Bokeh, Sharp, Splash And Dust Resistant
Excerpt: Wonderful lens, stunning sharpness and microcontrast, gorgeous bokeh. Every manufacturer has their superstar lenses that have that little bit of magic in them. This lens has that magic. Works great on my E-M1 as a portrait lens too.
Pros: Consistent Output, Great Micro-contrast, Nice Bokeh, Sharp
Excerpt: I normally only get remained or new but to save almost $300 Adorama has get prices and the rating system for used equipment are spot on Great working produce and no abnormal problems So if you have a chance to get used Do It
Excerpt: I've ordered the Olympus 50 f/2.0 macro lens & the focusing ring didn't work. Sent it back for a new one & the focusing ring didn't work on it either. Sent it back still waiting on another one. Adorama has been very good at replacing this lens.
Summary: I have to agree with other reviewers: It is really the most perfect lens. I can't add anything more than what the other positive reviewers have stated. I have an Olympus E-410 and used to use my 12-60mm 1:2.8-4 as my versatile all the time lens. But I have to say that this is now my favorite lens.
