  • Excerpt: Bought for my GH2. Image-wise I would give 5 stars but taking off one as the AF is less snappy in some close focus situations. Beautiful Leica-like bokeh and tack sharp. Perfect double duty portrait and macro. Image stabilization makes handheld macro easy.

  • Excerpt: I got this lens for closeup work and potraiture. My experience with these two aspects has been limited so far, but I have taken enough shots to get a feel for things. The Macro setting in manual mode takes some getting used to.
