    A great little (and I do mean *little*) macro lens

    0 5/5 E. Seale (Littleton, CO USA) - See all my reviews This review is from: Olympus MSC ED M. 60mm f/2.8 Lens (Electronics) This is a fantastic micro 4/3 successor to Olympus' impressive but now dated 50mm f/2.0 macro lens for 4/3 cameras. Small, light, and fast to focus, it handles well on all the micro 4/3 bodies I could find to test it on. It produces sharp images with little distortion and smooth, circular bokeh in out-of-focus parts of the frame. Unlike all other macro lenses currently available for the system, this lens is fully weather sealed -- put it on a weather-sealed micro 4/3 camera, and you're ready for the outdoors.As to features, it's got a focus limiter switch (although it's a bit tricky to use with gloves on), a scale showing your macro magnification and focusing distance, and can be set at the lens to a 1:1 macro magnification. Oh, and it's got a video-rated focusing motor, so you won't hear the lens focusing in your movies. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , October 8, 2012

    Excellent

    I hate to merely parrot what others have already said here, but it's really all I can do.In my experience the lens is sharp right from 2.8, with stopping down grabbing you a bit more. But the reality is it's sharp right from jump.I've not noticed any particularly glaring defects or aberrations of any kind. The bokeh is good. The build quality is good, though it is a plastic lens (and I'm so glad, as metal would have been $300 more), and the weather sealing merely adds to an already fantastic presentation.I will echo one reviewer here by saying that the af is not the best. It's not terrible by any means, but I've definitely experienced hunting in situations I wouldn't expect it. The focus limiter absolutely helps with this and is an invaluable inclusion, but it doesn't fix it. Often we're manual focusing with macro anyway, so it's not a big problem. I love the 1:1 option on the dial, but I wish you could simply click it and have it stay there... 5/5 Z. Wagner (Albuquerque, NM USA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Several advantages over the Panasonic 45mm macro (Leica)

    Let me concur with E. Seale's beautifully stated review and add a few notes. I have a resolution test montage consisting of several sets of lines per mm charts (edges and center) as well as textural fabrics and other objects. After stepping through f2.8 to f11 and allowing for some bit of tester error (me) the proper conclusion is that it is a tie between the Olympus 60mm macro and the Panasonic 45mm macro (Leica). If I were to totally trust my set up the nod would go to the Olympus 60mm. (BTW centers of both compared well with the Olympus 75mm f1.8, extreme edges of the 75mm are definitely sharper.)Another consideration is the lack of image stabilization on the Olympus macro lens. After shooting the same test subject with shutter speeds from 1/25th down to 1/5th of a second (bad), there appears to be some advantage for the 45mm around the 25th of a second. Not a very well controlled test, sorry, and very difficult to actually measure.A quick trip to the... 5/5 Tom N (Bay Area, CA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Super lightweight & function well

    Although the product image doesn't show it, the set I received (purchased from "New Harbor") have "FOTGA" preceding the "Extension Tube DG" label. So these seem to be the same set selling elsewhere for a higher price.Construction is super lightweight (stacked: 1.8oz or 52g), which matches up well with the m4/3 system. Yet the construction seems very good; the fit seems just right on both attached camera & lens as well as each other when stacked. Mounts seem to be made of aluminum. The flat electrical contacts (rear) are a bit smaller width than corresponding lens counterparts' flat contacts, but all electronic functions such as lens EXIF & exposure & auto-focus pass through fine (though you'll likely prefer to manual-focus at macro distance & the very narrow focus range using tubes - prone to AF hunting.) The interiors of the tubes are ribbed, which helps to dampen reflections.This set doesn't come with a front or rear cap, so you may consider obtaining a... 5/5 R.

For the price I am very pleased. One thing you have to get used to when using them or stacking them is that now the focal length adjustment IS your focus, you manually have to adjust it to the focal point that you want and have to keep in mind the lighting at this much closer distance to the target. Shadows from the lens may become a factor if you do not keep this in mind. Great addition for the price though.Attached are some photos using the extension tubes. Chocolate, crayon, pine cone, hair brush, flower. None of the images below have been cropped at all. Update: just added the honey bee. I was able to get that shot by using the extension tube on my 150mm lens. This is full zoom standing about 3-4ft away, uncropped image. 0, March 2, 2015

    ADEQUATE

    DESCRIPTION> Provides all the electronic connections for auto-exposure, auto-focus, etc.> Visually the extension tubes appear to be very well made.> The "body" of the tubes are plastic---but that isn't obvious, and the plastic is strong enough for ordinary lenses.> On the outside the finish is a dull and pebbly (which kinda looks as though cola or some other sticky soft drink dried on it). The finish isn't too objectionable, but doesn't match my camera, nor any camera I've ever owned.> The bayonet parts are metal, but are NOT the machined polished stainless steel of good camera mounts (or of the other brands of extension tubes I own). The metal is probably cast zinc.> In the set I received, the short tube fits well. But the longer tube fits tight, and sounds gritty when I install it.> However, the price needs to be taken into consideration---at the price, these tubes are a very good value.IN... 4/5 Stoney (Miami, FL) - See all my reviews, October 22, 2014

    Great Lens at a Great Price

    0 4/5 J. Lyons (Tallahassee, FL) - See all my reviews, January 9, 2007

    Excellent All Around Lens

    I've owned this lens for about a year and a half and originally I purchased it strictly for macro (and it's cheaper than the 50 f/2). I've learned that this lens does it all. Portraits, landscapes, street shooting, in addition to macro work. It's a 1:1 lens so you can get really close and pick out amazing details. It's as small as it looks and is quite compact. it fits nicely on the E-300 with or without the grip. One vice is that you will have to move in closer to a subject at times due to it's short focal length. For jittery critters the 50 f/2 or Sigma's 105 f/2.8 and 150 f/2.8 macro lenses may be better options. Since I do a lot of studio/indoor shoots and all of these lenses are too long for my needs. Another thing to note (and this is true of all macro lenses) is that it's not the best for capturing fast moving subjects. It can be done with practice, but results would be easier to come by using a non-macro lens. If you already own the 50 f/2 keep it, but if you're... 5/5 Jesse W.

    Nice lens for the price!

    0 4/5 penguinlvr (Albuquerque, NM USA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) With this lens you can really feel like you are almost next to your subject. I can't wait to get some shots at the next full moon. For the price, it is a great lens. The bokeh on this lens is nice, with a shallow DOF. That said, there are some shortcomings, but I would expect that from a telephoto zoom lens like this. First, the auto-focus will hunt in low light. I really don't think I'm going to be using the 300mm end of the lens in low light anyway. I noticed that the lens didn't seem to focus well if you had multiple focus points selected. Pick one of your focus points and use it. Remember that this lens, while light-weight is not one that you want to use hand-held at 300mm unless you can get a very short shutter speed. I noticed more than a few shots had problems with camera shake using longer shutter speeds. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , May 8, 2008

    Outstanding lens with a surprise

    This Zuiko lens, like all their lineup, is superb and a great value for the cost. This particular lens is an "ED" and assembled by hand (as opposed to the kit lenses, which still deliver excellent results) and delivers outstanding images with sharp details.Here's the surprise (at least it was to me); the lens also possesses a macro feature that is not (to my knowledge) advertised. Switch it to MF mode and rotate the focusing ring and the lens extends beyond the 300 mm point to indicate other markings on the inner tube. It gives you a pretty convenient macro lens function that is in focus at about 20" from the subject.I have the 35 mm macro and wouldn't trade it away now that I have this, but for convenience, this is a nice combo-- plus you can capture an insect on a flower, etc. while maintaining a distance that won't scare it away.Oly should let people know about this more so than they do, but it is a nice little surprise I wasn't expecting (or seeking).
