  • Conclusion: The Olympus Zuiko Digital 50mm F2.0 Macro is a lens which we've held in high regard ever since we started using it for our reviews of Four Thirds camera bodies, and subjecting it to our full optical test suite shows precisely why. Certainly in terms of the studio results, it's the nearest we've yet found to a technically perfect lens (although it's important to appreciate that we haven't yet tested any comparable short tele macros for other formats).
  • Pros: Superb image quality even wide open - sharp, distortion-free with no lateral CA, Compact and lightweight compared to similar lenses for larger formats, Fast maximum aperture for a macro lens
  • Cons: Unrefined autofocus motor and no focus range limiter switch, Susceptible to flare with bright light sources in the frame, Bokeh chromatic aberration at wider apertures, No macro ratio scale
