Solid macro lens when used with GH4

WelcomeProductions, B&H Photo
12 August 2014
  • Excerpt: Use this as go to macro on the GH4. Fairly solid build and decent in low light. There may be better more solidly built lenses out there, but focus is critical in macro, so I like that with the GH4, autofocus works, as does the built in stabilizer.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight

  • Summary: This is a very sharp lens! Great colors, very light weight, like many of the MF3ds lens's. Pretty nice portrait len's just a tad soft in the corners at 2.8, but can be fixed in post if needed or cropped out. This lens has one problem, focus.

Perfect M43 Macro and Portrait Glass,

  • Excerpt: This was the first lens I bought for my GH2 with the 14-140 kit lens. Initially bought for macro use and it is tack sharp. I shot some newly hatched rare fish fry for a friend's aquarium blog. I was amazed at how sharp the images of the 2mm transparent fish were.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh

Nice Medium Telephoto Lens

JP47, B&H Photo
21 July 2012
  • Excerpt: I bought this for my GH2 because I like the 50mm f1.8 on my NEX 5N. They both perform similarly on their respective camera bodies. The NEX/50mm combo is still the better stills camera... similar sharpness but much better low light performance... faster lens with a faster sensor.
  • Pros: Lightweight, Nice Bokeh

Great macro and portrait on M43

JonNYC, Adorama
8 June 2012
  • 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.
  • Pros: Easily Interchangeable, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh
  • Cons: Slow Focus

Great macro, but Oly Better Otherwise

Dennis, B&H Photo
26 February 2012
  • Excerpt: I own the Olympus micro 4/3 macro, and then I bought this lens because I needed a macro lens. Having used both, I like the Oly better for everything but macro. The Oly doesn't do macro, so if you need that this is the one to get.
  • Pros: Easily Interchangeable, Nice Bokeh
  • Cons: Expensive, Heavy, Slow Focus
