  • Macro Quality

  • February 13, 2014
  • By: ROBERT

I had previously purchased only Olympus micro 4/3 lenses. Was I in for a surprise! This lens is crystal clear and sharp. Also, the auto-focus using my OM-D E-M5 is the best of all my lenses. After this experience, I ran out an purchased two other Panasonic lenses. Buy this lens and you will not be disappointed!

  • Razor-sharp macro lens

  • January 05, 2014
  • By: Ed

This macro lens give amazing optical performance. It is in my tests flat-field, just as sharp in the corners as in the centre, even at f:2.8, and consistently sharp from f:2.8 through f:9. The image stabilization also works well; for normal shooting distances (though not at macro distances) I can get away hand-held at 1/8 second. Nice lens for portraits. Pleasant bokeh, though probably not as much as with the Oly 45mm f:1.8 (which isn't macro). On MFT the lens essentially gives twice life-size reproduction at closest focus, but the free operating distance is almost non-existent -- at closest focus the subject is only a centimeter or two from the front element. Comes with a rectangular lens hood, which unfortunately doesn't reverse for storage. Quite compact, only slightly larger than the Pany 25mm f:1.4.
