Capture beautiful details with impeccable accuracy with this ultra-lightweight Macro lens. Take pictures of flowers, coins, stamps and more from less than 6 inches to infinity with dramatic results. Designed exclusively for digital photography, this lens delivers rich, accurate colors and high contrast from edge-to-edge, and is ideal to use for macro shots and even standard landscape and portrait shots, as well. Lens distortions, shading and exposure information are automatically corrected via the built-in CPU for even higher image quality. And because it weighs less than 6 ounces, carrying it is just as appealing as using it.
Very good macro lens for the price.
This is a great lens! I'm very happy with it. I needed a lens to take more portrait like photos of my grandkids. This one was just what I needed! Very happy.
This is a good lens, except for how short of a lens it is. A macro lens this short makes it difficult to take pictures of any kind of insects. This lens is definitely better to use for plant macrophotography. The autofocus is pretty dodgy too. Maybe mine is defective, but it won't even focus on something about two feet away. I've resorted to manual focus only for this lens. I just use the hybrid focus to manually focus it close to where it needs to be, and then let the autofocus make minor adjustments. At this rate, I don't even know if buying into the Olympus DSLR family is a good idea. The last DSLR Olympus made was in 2010; they've been more focused on the m4/3 system lately. I would suggest that you go for Canon or Nikon so you don't buy into a dead system.
Primarily used for very close to subject macro photo. Very sharp lens with good depth of field on very close tiny objects. Auto focus will hunt when subject ius extremely close and complex. Manual focus is easily available to counter this.
Mainly macro photography. Focusing not easy. Good crisp images
I'm very happy with this lens.
Totally surprises at the POOR quality of a lens from Olymnpus. What were they thinking when they made this lens? ? ? ? ?
I wanted to get up close with my flowers. This lens fits my needs. It is quick and easy to use. The price was great. The quality of the Olympus lens are fantastic the pictures are crisp and clear! I will be looking for a ring flash for this lens to add light for certain conditions.
I use this 4/3 lens w/Oly adapter on Oly EPL-1. I consider this lens to be a bargain. Mine is very slightly mushy at the closest focusing distance but, when brought back just a bit, becomes extremely sharp. I do not know if my use of the adapter affects the closest focus. I think this is the cheapest true macro ($235) on the market, except maybe for the discontinued 100mm 3.5 Vivitr/Phoenix ($150), and I'd grab one now.
Got this lens for pictures of flowers and insects, and for items I sell on the famous auction site. Works perfectly for those things, but it turns out it's a great "walking-around" lens too. Super sharp, fast focusing in good light (although I use manual focus for macro) Equivalent to a 70mm lens on 35mm, I've used it for portraits, too. It's slightly bigger than I expected, about the same size as the kit zoom when retracted. Great value for the money.
