sweet, tiny macro lens

  • Excerpt: I was looking for a smaller photography rig (like many that have made the switch to m4/3) and a macro lens was essential as I love looking for fine details.<br /><br />This is a TINY lens - think of a skinny Red Bull can. It's even small on my Olympus OM-D E-M1 (especially compared to the 12-40mm Pro lens).
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh

  • Excerpt: I was looking for a smaller photography rig (like many that have made the switch to m4/3) and a macro lens was essential as I love looking for fine details. This is a TINY lens - think of a skinny Red Bull can. It's even small on my Olympus OM-D E-M1 (especially compared to the 12-40mm Pro lens). Focus limiter helps you keep the lens from ranging far and wide to focus and the magnifying feature of the OM-D makes this easy to get the focus right the first time.

Nice sharp lens

MinAZ, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: A relatively light (though still very long for m4/3) lens that has excellent image quality. The only downside I can think of is that some of the controls on the lens are slightly fiddly (e.g. the 1: 1 switch).
  • Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus

Fantastic lens

Photo Buddha, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: I've used the wonderful Zuiko 50mm F2.0 Macro for years and thought that it was the best that a Macro lens could get. Well it got better. Since moving to the OM-D series from the E30, the problem of having to use the MMF-3 adapter on the OM-D presented a challenge for focusing, constantly having to use the manual focusing ring. This was much improved with the M1, but the 50MM still had hunting issues when focusing. This is solved with the 60mm.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction

Great Macro Lens

  • Excerpt: Using lens for 1: 1 macro and other macro shots outside and in studio. Light weight and small, images are sharp and focus is easy with my Olympus D E-M1 Peaking feature. Be sure to get the lens hood. It slides on the lens body so can stay on all the time.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh

A very fine macro lens

  • Excerpt: I use this mostly on an EM-1 and occasionally on an EPL-5 to shoot flowers and insects. It has enough working distance for the nasty little buzzers! I was used to using a Sigma 180mm f/2.8 OS HSM on a D700 and then a D610; this is as good! The larger DOF with m4/3 lenses is an advantage here as you can use a better light gathering f/9 in stead of f/16 or higher to get enough DOF. The lens is tiny (the Sigma was like a recoilless rifle!) and very sharp.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, SHARP SHARP SHARP

Excellkent lens

  • Excerpt: This lens is an excellent macro lens. I was looking on my computer at pictures of some flowers when I noticed a fuzzy spot on a petal. On viewing at 100% I realized it was a clear image of an aphid. This lens has great resolution at 1: 1 magnification. It also does very well as a portrait lens with very good bokeh at f2.8. It appears to be well made of metal.

SHARP, LIGHTWEIGHT, GOOD VALUE

  • Excerpt: Excellent macro performance all the way to 1: 1. Fast enough at f/2.8 for higher shutter speed handheld shots when a tripod is not available. At 60mm, it is a good, medium telephoto lens too. I especially like the smooth manual focus that works well with the focus peaking feature on my EM-1 camera. I bought the lens about a month ago so I can't comment on durability yet. It feels light, but well made.

Delightful lens

Ken, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: I have used the lens primarily for macro shots, getting close enough for 1: 1 reproduction (or close to it dependning on compositional needs). Way more flexible than using extension tubes. Thrilled to replace my Tamron (pentax mount) 90 macro [also a nice lens], as this is approx 1/3 the size and weight. Using on a OMD E M5 body and very happy with the image quality.
  • Pros: Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
