About this deal

I have to be honest, the 12-40 Pro is so good and can focus to 1:3 macro, that I often do not take a true macro lens into the field with me much anymore. M.ZUIKO Digital ED Micro Four Thirds Lens is a dedicated macro lens with a robust, lightweight design and a fast aperture of f/2. Depth of field was important to me and understanding the range limitations of the depth of field what would be in focus vs the ratio being shot.

This telephoto macro lens for Micro Four Thirds system cameras from Olympus provides an angle of view equivalent to a 120mm lens used on a 35mm camera, has a silent MSC focusing motor and produces life size magnification at its closest focus distance. Another benefit of the working distance of this lens, is that it gives lots of space for your external diffuser to not get in the way.

I use the 60mm macro extensively and it's my most used lens, but I agree, it lacks the "pop" at all apertures, sometimes I even feel the 12-40 f/2. As you can see in the EXIF data for the two images above, I was able to shoot in Handheld Hi Res mode while also using an extension tube… or two. While most sane individuals are still contently snuggled up in the sheets, you’re up and out the door into the 5am darkness; loaded to the brim with camera gear and coffee.

Featuring a 2x* magnification and minimum focusing distance of about 7-and-a-half inches it strikes a nice balance between just close enough and not so close you’ll cast shadows on the scene. If you want a lens to spice up your photography, something to have some fun with and to use indoors or out.I find it much easier to find focus by gently moving my camera in and out until I see my desired focus on the LCD or in the EVF. After using this lens for about a month, I have to say that the AF is very good, but it is not at the top of the MFT pack. Also, it was a little windy and the leaves were shaking a little, I needed the bump in shutter speed to completely freeze any motion.
