I Am Spoiled

  • Summary: I am already spoiled by this lens. Time elapsed from unboxing to shooting some very nice keepers, 1 hour. It's a great, great lens, just a bit clunky to carry in the woods, but it is still a nice balance for the OM-D series frames. I would suggest a UV filter cap if only for protection. Learn how to use the lens' dial, especially the 1:1 setting, and you're off and running in no time. Makes fantastic portraits, too. It's a lovable lens, well worth the money.

An excellent lens

  • Excerpt: I purchase this lens for EM1 and this is a wonderful lens which has 1: 1 ratio. I compared it with Zeiss 100/f2 Micro, and Leica R100 Macro. I could say this lens performance is the same good but much light and small as that two.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Strong Construction

A great Macro Accessory.

David Hutchinson, Amazon

  • Summary: I shoot a lot of Macro...close things like flowers,bugs, watches, etc.. I made a lot of comparisons before purchasing. This lens works great. Nice120mm focal length for Macro. It is pin sharp at f2.8. Shipped without a lens hood...I hate that. Shame on Olympus. I won't use any lens without a hood. Fortunately there are 3rd party providers that sell good, cheap lens hoods.

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

Tiny, sharp, sweet macro lens

  • Summary: 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
18 July 2014
  • 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
6 July 2014
  • 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.
