Aughhh! Giant Dust! Cool.

Bone Daddy, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: The 1: 1 clarity on this little lens is nothing short of amazing, rendering any imperfections, such as neglect-betraying dust, massive and obvious. So subjects should be cleaned thoroughly before shooting. 'Cause ew.Also, this type of focal length requires more ambient or focused light than you'd think, making the depth of field extremely shallow. So a ring light or even the Oly MAL-1 would be recommended.REALLY fun to use.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Rugged
  • Cons: Poor in Low Light, Slow Focus

Nineteen Stars out of Twenty...

  • Excerpt: I've always wanted a dedicated macro lens, without the inconvenience of bellows or tubes, and the Olympus 60mm really fills the bill. I purchased a clear filter, which is a must have, and the lens hood, which is a semi-must have, depending on your POV with this lens. To be able to go from mild telephoto/landscape to shooting lady bugs with one lens and no fuss, really tipped the scale for me.
  • Pros: Versatile
  • Cons: Addictive

Under Appreciated Gem

kawhona, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: Yes this is a very nice macro but, it is also a very capable moderate tele. It renders colors very nicely and is almost as sharp as its 75mm big brother. In some cases I prefer the rendering on this lens to the 75mm.
  • Pros: Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh

Comparision with Leica-Lumix Macro; especially use on Lumix cameras

Stoney, Amazon
19 November 2014
  • Summary: PRICE, QUALITY, AND PERFORMANCE > There is no doubt that the Leica DG Macro-Elmarit 45mm F2.8 Macro is an excellent lens--indeed I purchased a Lumix GX7 system largely to be able to use this lens, largely based on a 20-year love affair with a Vivitar 90mm f2.8 macro (90mm in 35mm format = 45mm in M4/3 format). I even purchased one at FULL price from Amazon, but returned it when it malfunctioned. > PRICE: about $1000 for the Leica vs $500 for the Zuiko.

Price fixing at its "finest"!

Fred Forbes, Amazon
26 October 2014
  • Summary: Price fixing, in my humble opinion, seems to be at work here. Identified the lens I wanted and checked Amazon - $499, then Adorama - $499, then B&H - $499. These are all firms I have used and trust and everyone of them quotes identical prices. (Went with Amazon for the free shipping.) It has been my experience that the only time one encounters this uniformity of pricing is when the manufacturer enforces stiff retail price maintenance.

Great macro on the E-M10

  • Summary: Tack sharp. Even better with the well designed retractable lens hood (which ... earth to Olympus ... should be included with a lens of this price).

So small. So light. So awesome!

KTG, B&H Photo
21 September 2014
  • Excerpt: When I got the lens and took it out of the box I have to say I was a bit shocked at the size/weight... it's SO tiny! Haha... still getting used to micro 4/3 I guess. It may not look like much on your camera but in my experience so far it's been outstanding for all my own macro needs! The only thing I encountered that I didn't like was that I needed to call Olympus to figure out how to disable the auto magnifying feature that the lens does right out of the box.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Lightweight
