13 March 2013
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 someone who is serious about photography

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.

Summary: The image quality of this lens is absurd. It's very good. It's very clean; it's very sharp; it's very contrasty. It's a macro lens. By itself it can zoom in pretty close. I don't have any of the teleconverters or extension tubes, but from what I've read it seems that they really expand the utility of this lens's macro function. I usually use this for product photography. It's focal length is good for this. It's also a good focal length for adult portraiture.
Simply a great lens I wouldn't want to be without.

Summary: I love this lens. At f2.0 it's really fast, and the Oly optics are really clear. I couldn't be happier with this lens, and for the money it's a great deal. Unless you can afford a much better lens I recommend this for any 4/3 owner.
Summary: All I can say is ....WOW! This is an amazing lens. It produces sharp, crisp images as well as soft, blurry images with plenty of Bokeh if that is what you want. I find it ideal for macro photography as well as for taking portraits and pet portraits.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
