    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?)

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

    0 5/5 E. Seale (Littleton, CO USA) - See all my reviews, October 8, 2012

    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 "TomN" (Bay Area, CA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    It works well for its intended purpose

    It's not a 100mm 2.8 L macro lens, but then it didn't cost $1000 either. I bought this to add to a travel camera kit I was putting together. Attached to an Olympus 45mm 1.8 lens I am able to get noticeably closer focus, and surprisingly it turns pretty decent images. If you are planning to shoot a lot of true macro then you probably should pony up the money, and buy a dedicated macro lens. If you simply need the ability to get closer for the odd occasional "macro-ish" shot should do quite nicely.Pros:can render reasonably sharp close up imagesInexpensive when compared to the cost of a true macro lensdoesn't take up quite as much room in a camera bag as true macro lensCons:not as good as a true macro lensthe bayonet attachment is a bit funky (at least when attached to the Oly 45mm 1.8 lens)construction is definitely on the plasticky side (if you are working on a super light weight kit, this might be a plus)... 5/5 cpl366 - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    You will be disappointed if you are looking for true macro photography.

    0 3/5 Austin_Canon7d_shooter - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Olympus MCON-P01 Macro Converter (Silver) (Electronics) It sort of works. I mean, if you are using Zuiko 14-42mm lens, you won't see vast improvement after you attach the Macro converter. If you really love macro, super close-up photography, you will need to invest in the good macro lens. This converter gives you just a tiny improvement on minimal focal length but that's it. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , March 30, 2013

    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).

    0 4/5 Serious Cook "W.T.E." (Bakersfield, CA) - See all my reviews As a long-time 35 mm shooter, it was amazing to find the equivalent of a 140-600 f 5.6 lens for $400.00. The lens shoots clear, rich color photos. The only negatives I have found are slow auto-focus, and difficulty focusing under indoor lighting.

    The brilliant, long awaited portrait prime for µ4/3

    Here it is, folks: your heretofore missing µ4/3 portrait lens. And what a marvelous little gem it is.Why would you want this lens? Well, it's 45mm, and it's f/1.8, a combination which allows you to generate some serious subject isolation with its relatively shallow depth of field. This is the "DSLR blurry background look" that many people crave, and it's very difficult to pull off with most existing µ4/3 lenses (due to their generally slow speed combined with µ4/3's smaller-than-DSLR sensor).Of course, f/1.8 isn't just there to isolate your subjects; this represents a dramatic improvement in low light performance when compared to any other native lens in this focal length. Your kit lens, for example, probably hits f/5.6 by here; this little guy lets in *nearly ten times as much light*. So you can use much faster shutter speeds and lower ISO, making low light shooting much more viable (since µ4/3 high ISO performance is lacking, fast lenses like this are crucial... 5/5 Jeremy - See all my reviews This review is from: Olympus M.

    One of the 'must-have' lenses for micro 4/3

    I'm using this lens with a Panasonic GF1. Even after having my micro 4/3 for 2 years, I continue to be impressed at how small these lenses are, especially when compared with the huge NEX system lenses from Sony. The Olympus 45mm 1.8 continues that trend with a diminutive size and weight. The plastic body certainly helps with bring the weight down, in contrast to the 12mm all-metal wide-angle also from Olympus. When I set the camera down, the lens doesn't tip the camera over which helps for setting it on a table for time-release shots.There are sample videos on the internet showing the focus speed on cameras like the GF3 and E-P3. My GF1 seemed to focus a bit slower with this 45mm lens than those cameras, but it was still spot on and almost silent. It was certainly faster and quieter than the 20mm pancake. The minimal focus distance says 0.5m. For practical purposes that means that you can't focus down on someone sitting right next to you but you can if they are one seat... 5/5 Rishi Agrawal - See all my reviews, October 17, 2011

    Light, fast and sharp - just what a prime should be

    This 45mm micro four-thirds lens is equivalent to 90mm on a full-frame camera (because of the M43 crop factor) -- a fairly specialised medium-telephoto focal length which is usually associated with portraits and macro, neither of which have interested me much in the past. Nevertheless, my interest was piqued by some early reviews which hinted that there was something special about the lens, and I was ultimately swayed into purchasing it after seeing some excellent street shots on Robin Wong's website.At US$350 I initially thought it to be a reasonably expensive piece of glass given that it is the size and weight of a third of a can of coke, and I was also concerned that I would find the focal length too long. However, I have since grown increasingly happy with my purchase.The lens is light-weight (116g) and is made of plastic (apart from the metal mount), but it does feel solid. Most importantly, the glass is good. It comes with better quality lens-caps than... 4/5 newzild "newzild" (Malaysia) - See all my reviews This review is from: Olympus M.
