Excerpt: I had a hard time deciding on buying a macro lens for my E-M10. I already have a couple of manual macros, an OM and a Pentax, used with adapters. But although manual focus is fine, I do a lot of stuff outdoors and on hikes, and wind is blowing, insects are flying, and focusing is a chore.
Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
Excerpt: I'd prefer a slightly larger diameter lens that's faster, like f2.0; otherwise, the 60mm is an excellent lens. I really don't see Olympus coming out with another macro anytime soon, so speed is of the upmost importance to prevent having to push the iso.

Summary: I knew it is a good lens before buying, and it does not disappoint me. It is very sharp, and can reach true 1:1 magnification (2:1 in 35mm equivalent!). Highly recommended for Olympus camera bodies (it does not have optical stabilization, so it may not work as well on Panasonic camera bodies).
Summary: Bought for my wife for her new four thirds system. She is very pleased with the lens and uses it for garden magazine articles she submits. Since the magazine uses the shots. I have to assume they are of professional quality. Delivery and quality were quite good and so far we have no complaints.
