Reviews and Problems with Olympus Zuiko Digital ED 50mm F2.0 Macro
Showing 1-10 of 81
Excellent Close-Up as Well as All-Purpose Lens
27 May 2015
Summary: I bought the Zuiko ED 50mm f2.0 Macro 1:2 for my E-600 DSLR, and will likely buy the MFT adapter to be able to use it on my newly purchased OM-D E-M10 Mark II as well. This lens is as close to perfect a lens as I could ever imagine.
Summary: I intend to keep using this lens on micro four-thirds bodies long after I get rid of all my other four thirds gear. There is something about the crispness of the images and the creaminess of the bokeh that is instantly recognizable.
Excerpt: I bought this as a way to try out a new prime lens, buying it used. The lens arrived quickly after ordering it. (Adorama is one of the best online dealers I've dealt with). The lens itself is in mint condition, works like it is brand new.
Summary: I purchased this lens about 5 months ago, and have used it on my E-500, OMD E-M5, and the E-5. This is really a fantastic lens; colors really Pop off the screen (or print), Contrast is corner to corner, and I see no distortion. And the bokeh is impressive.
Excerpt: I just got this lens. Work well very clear pictures. I had read that it searches when focusing. Makes- Agrinding noise. It did that for me. This seemed to occur when the object is dark or with no clearly define edges. I always have used single point focusing. I tried multipoint focusing .
Excerpt: Wonderful lens, stunning sharpness and microcontrast, gorgeous bokeh. Every manufacturer has their superstar lenses that have that little bit of magic in them. This lens has that magic. Works great on my E-M1 as a portrait lens too.
Excerpt: I normally only get remained or new but to save almost $300 Adorama has get prices and the rating system for used equipment are spot on Great working produce and no abnormal problems So if you have a chance to get used Do It
Summary: I purchased this lens about 5 months ago, and have used it on my E-500, OMD E-M5, and the E-5. This is really a fantastic lens; colors really Pop off the screen (or print), Contrast is corner to corner, and I see no distortion.
Excerpt: Non-zoom lens equivalent to 100mm focal length on a 35mm film camera. Since I already nave the great Zuiko 12-60 mm (= 24 to 120 mm) f2.8-4.0 lens, which has pretty good close focusing capability at the tele end, this lens does not add much new macro capability.
