Great Macro Lens

Lynne, Adorama
16 April 2014
  • Excerpt: I take photographs as a hobby (posting to several online photo-sharing sites) and wanted a macro lens for my Lumix GF3. So far, I'm very pleased with the quality of the shots I've taken with this lens--very good detail and color. It is extremely light--in fact when I received the package, I thought the box was empty! I have no complaints at all, except for the price (it was expensive).
  • Pros: Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh

My Favourite Macro Lens EVER!

Paul Racecar, Adorama
7 December 2013
  • Excerpt: I put this lens on an Olympus EM-5 and shoot away. The lens has wonderful contrast, beautiful bokeh, lovely color rendition, and focuses fast. With an angle of view comparable to a 90mm on a full frame camera, I can get close-up to skittish subjects with out getting too physically close. I don't know why this lens seems to be overlooked by many pros, it's my most useful lens. I love it!
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Goofy Lens Hood

  • Excerpt: I love the sharpness and lovely rendering this lens produces. With the Olympus OM-D EM-5 the focus speed is just fine. I found that the key to fast focus with my combo is to select the right size focus box for my subject matter.

Great macro lens

Red Shaft, B&H Photo
6 April 2013
  • Excerpt: As you might expect, a lens made by Leica is not cheap—either in price or quality. This 45 mm (90 mm equivalent of standard DSLR's) macro lens is micro 4/3 technology used by Olympus, Kodak, and Panasonic in mirrorless cameras. With an adapter it could also be used on 4/3 cameras made by Nikon and Canon. I have used it solely with the Panasonic GH3.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Slow Focus
