Excerpt: This lens provides excellent image quality when used on my Panasonic G5. There is no apparent chromatic aberration or distortion. The lens does tend to hunt a little on focusing but the focus limiting switch does an excellent job of alleviating this minor problem.
Excerpt: I picked up this lens as a "poor mans 75/1.8." I have the 4/3 50mm f2 but it focuses slowly on my E-M1, and while technically a macro lens it doesn't have the 1: 1 magnification of this lens. The m4/3 60/2.8 has decent subject isolation and is a good alternative to the 75/1.8.
Pros: Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Rugged
Excerpt: I thought I wanted a dedicated macro lens. I first tried the Panasonic 30mm macro, but it was way too short. I had to get way to close to flowers, say and I just couldn't get a good focus with a hand-held camera. I tried the Olympus and while I had a better subject distance, I still got too close.
Pros: Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight
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
