The Olympus MSC ED M. 60mm f/2.8 Macro Lens is compatible with the PEN series of interchangeable-lens digital cameras. It is a prime lens with a fixed focal length of 60mm designed for sharp close-up shooting. The wide, fast f/2.8 aperture creates a shallow depth of field and improves image quality in low-light conditions. The lens features an ED (extra-low dispersion) glass element, which reduces chromatic aberrations for greater accuracy in your images. This macro lens is also Movie & Still Compatible (MSC), meaning its focusing is quiet enough that the sound will not be picked up during video recording.

Advantages this lens has over the 12-50mm lens:
• 1:1 max reproduction ratio
• More reach than the 12-50mm (60mm vs 50mm)
• It's a faster lens (f/2.8 vs f/3.5-6.3)

The Olympus 60mm F/2.8 Mirrorless is commonly used for Macro photography and more.One reason why the Olympus 60mm F/2.8 Mirrorless is popular is because of its Lightweight

Excellent macro and telephoto

Providing a full-frame equivalent focal length of 120mm, this is a useful telephoto for portraits and still life. It is tack sharp, fast at f 2.8 and has excellent bokah. Macro capabilities are superior, allowing close ups to within a few centimeters. Focussing does tend to seek (normal for all macro lenses), but is usually accurate. This is my go-to lens when I want to carry a medium telephoto on my MFT with the bonus of macro capabilities. It is very light weight. Buy the optional lens shad...

I Like this Lens

By

from Plainfield, IN  -  Photo Enthusiast

The recent 20% off sale tipped me over the edge on this purchase. I had done some research and thought this would make a nice addition to my kit. I was a bit concerned when I opened the box because it is really small. I knew it was supposed to be small, but it was still a surprise. I mounted it on my EM-5 MkII and thought it felt a little like a toy because it was so light and small. I took a few test photos of flowers blooming in the yard and was quite impressed with the sharpness, color and, you guessed it, how light it was. I take a lot of flower photos hand held in the yard every year. This unit is a light easy to use package that produces some really impressive shots. I have a Nikon D600 with a 105mm f2.8 VR lens which takes great photos as well, but this set-up is so much lighter and I don't feel like I am giving anything up by using it. No supplied lens hood or lens bag = 4 stars instead of 5

sweet, tiny macro lens

By

from Houston, TX  -  Photo Enthusiast

I was looking for a smaller photography rig (like many that have made the switch to m4/3) and a macro lens was essential as I love looking for fine details. This is a TINY lens - think of a skinny Red Bull can. It's even small on my Olympus OM-D E-M1 (especially compared to the 12-40mm Pro lens). Focus limiter helps you keep the lens from ranging far and wide to focus and the magnifying feature of the OM-D makes this easy to get the focus right the first time. I've mounted a step up ring to it so I can snap on a Metz ring flash that is light enough to stay on with no issues. Loving this lighter, smaller rig! Don't forget that with a m4/3 sensor, you'll get a deeper depth of field at a comparable F-stop than a larger sensor. This means more light coming in and more areas in focus (which can mean a lot when you're shooting a 1mm insect!).

A great tool for macro shots

By

from Cleveland Ohio area  -  Photo Enthusiast

I've only had this lens for a couple of weeks, but I'm quite happy with its performance. I need to get more familiar with its auto focusing capabilities, especially the 1:1 range.

Terrific macro lens

By

from North Carolina, USA  -  Professional

We use this for garden and flower photography. It replaces an old manual focus 90mm macro lens, which we used with an adapter on our Micro 4/3 cameras. The 60mm macro is extremely sharp even wide open. Stopped down it provides decent depth of field control, which is important for macro photography. The lens is very light, making it easy to use handheld, and on a tripod it's well balanced. The focus limiters are pretty well thought out. It can be a little tough to shoot at 1:1, but that's true of any macro lens. We purchased an aftermarket screw-in metal lens hood, rather than the expensive Olympus hood. Not sure why Olympus won't include a hood with their expensive pro-level lenses.

Questions & Answers Powered by TurnTo®

Questions about this item:

Wilhelm M  Will this lens even focus if I couple it with the Kenko MFT Macro tube extensions?
STEPHEN M  Sorry I can't answer the question. I don't own an extention tube. I wouldn't mind trying it myself. The Zuiko ED 60mm f 2.8 Macro does a pretty goood job on it's own.
Lou G  Is the lens hood included. He is shown on all the pictures here on the page, but I can not find him listed anywhere separately. So, if he is to be bought a part, where can I find him here?
DENNIS L  NO! As usual, Olympus is showing lenses that appear to have a lens hood included with purchase. In fact, there is not only no lens hood included, but, as of this writing, Olympus is not even manufacturing the lens hood for this specific lens. A usual practice for this once great photographic manufacturer.
Shopper  Does the lens hood come with the lens?
KESINEE T  No.
