  • 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). <br /><br />The lens itself is in mint condition, works like it is brand new.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight

Excellent lens

Jray66, Adorama
20 November 2013
  • Excerpt: I just got this lens. Work well very clear pictures. I had read that it searches when focusing. Makes-<br />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 . The focusing was then extremely fast and appears to be accurate. And with out searching. I hope this holds up. Also tried five point pattern.

two lenes would'nt work

Not happy, Adorama
13 June 2013
  • Excerpt: I've ordered the Olympus 50 f/2.0 macro lens &amp; the focusing ring didn't work. Sent it back for a new one &amp; 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. I even called Olympus and explained the problem to them, they were no help at all they need to tighten up on quality control.

My new favorite lens!

Lisa Patterson, Amazon
15 May 2013
  • 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. I don't find the focus too slow. It's a good, solid lens, well made and holds up great. I will try to add some photos as well.

  • Summary: Was listed as "as is" but it showed up looking like new. The lens is a great for macro and portrait shots...I bought this as I wanted a lens specifically for macro photography. This fits in nicely. It is compact and precise..will have more to say once I get more use of it!

Great for portraits, closeups

Joe H, Adorama
10 September 2012
  • Excerpt: Non-zoom lens equivalent to 100mm focal length on a 35mm film camera. Since I already nave the great Zuiko 12-60 mm (= 24 to 120 mm) f2.8-4.0 lens, which has pretty good close focusing capability at the tele end, this lens does not add much new macro capability. But it's 2 stops faster, and only weighs half as much. <br /><br />This lens has great bokeh. I use it as a portrait and general walking-around lens.
  • Pros: Low Light Champ, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Slow Focus

Great for someone who is serious about photography

basieswings1984, Ebay

  • Summary: A little noisy, a little slower than the other Olympus Zuiko lenses, but it takes amazing photos. There is a bit of a learning curve with it but once you figure it out it's a heck of an amazing piece of photographic equipment.
