  • Excerpt: This replaces a Canon macro as I have moved to a 4/3's system. Love the f2.8, the lightweight, and sharp images, Once I figured out how to use it, I haven't been able to put it down.
  • Pros: Easily Interchangeable, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh
  • Cons: No Instruction Pamphlet

Great great great

  • Excerpt: I shoot a lot of weddings and have started using a &micro;4/3 system during the ceremony and hope to someday go totally &micro;4/3. This lens is great for details like the ring and even portraits. <br /><br />I am not a fan of the construction however and often fear breaking it when putting it on and off the camera body... but that's me. So far no such thing has happened. Just a feel thing I guess. I don't have this fear with the other lenses I use with this mount...
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Great images, Lightweight, Nice Portraits
  • Cons: Feels fragile, Sluggish Focus

Great macro lens

  • Excerpt: Great lens. Handles nicely, very sharp, great rendition. I do think Olympus should have included the hood instead of asking [$] for it. Thus only 4 stars, but it's really a five star lens.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Image Quality, Lightweight
  • Cons: No Accessories Included

Wonderful macro, solid portraits

  • Excerpt: Used on the Olympus E-M5;terrific macro lens for micro four-thirds. I don't have the Panny 45 mm but can't imagine that lens would be any sharper than the 60 mm. No IS for the 60 mm, no lens hood, and at this writing no micro four-thirds mount extension tube availability (you'll need an adaptor and four-thirds tube for that), but...<br /><br />..
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Nice Bokeh
  • Cons: Slow Focus

Give it time

  • Summary: When I first bought this lens I was really not happy with it. It took me some time to get used to it and the interface with the EM-5. Now I am quite pleased with the results I am getting and should have some shots in the Gallery with the lens that you can check out. The AF/MF option allows me to get nice sharp results which I usually fuzz up a bit with my texturing but, that isn't the lens fault.

excellent macro lens

  • Summary: Image quality is fantastic, probably as good as can ever be wished for in a lens this small. Weather sealed & good price make it an even better deal. The focus limit dial on the side seems a bit odd to me, hope it doesn't break or jam up. No lens hood included? LH-49 isn't even for sale yet? That's why I didn't give five stars.
