  • Excerpt: The M.Zuiko 60mm f/2.8 use Olympus' new MSC AF focusing system. Unlike some other members of the species, the AF works both fast and silently. Manual focusing is "by-wire" rather than mechanically linked which may or may not be an annoyance for some.

  • Excerpt: The Panasonic Leica DG MACRO-ELMARIT 45 mm f/2.8 ASPH. M.O.I.S. has been so far the first and only brand name macro lens in the Micro 4/3 system. However, as every piece of equipment with ‘Leica’ in its name, it was also expensive and its focal length was too short for many applications.
  • Cons: modest accessory kit,, noticeable astigmatism at the maximum relative aperture.

  • Summary: Az Olympus és Panasonic által használt mikro NégyHarmad rendszerben eddig kevés megfizethető árú és jó makróobjektív volt. Az Olympus tavaly megjelent optikája azonban megtöri a jeget, s kedvező áron kínál 1:1 lefedettségű makróobjektívet. Vajon az objektív minősége nem szenvedte kárát a jó árnak?

  • Summary: Nie piszę za dużo o obiektywie, bo nie ma się tutaj nad czym rozwodzić. Po pierwsze, w systemie Mikro 4/3 nie ma on konkurencji, po drugie, jest na tyle dobry, że spokojnie można każdemu polecić jego zakup, co niniejszym czynimy.
  • Pros: zgrabny i ciekawie zaprojektowany korpus obiektywu,, rewelacyjna jakość obrazu w centrum kadru,, dobra jakość obrazu na brzegu kadru,, niewielka aberracja chromatyczna,, zerowa dystorsja,, świetnie korygowana koma,, umiarkowane winietowanie,, cichy i bardzo celny autofokus.
  • Cons: skromne wyposażenie standardowe,, zauważalny astygmatyzm na maksymalnym otworze względnym.
