    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

    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?)

    Blisteringly Sharp Lens at a Great Price!

    Build Quality and Handling: 4/5It's long, skinny and light.Plastic with metal mount but feels solid.Weather-sealing is definitely a plus and pairs well with the OMD EM5.Glass looks almost invisible with all the special coatings.Image Quality: 5/5One of the sharpest lens I've ever owned on any system including DSLRs.Very low vignetting wide open.CA and flare is very well controlled.Focusing: 3/5Not the fastest focusing lens on m4/3 in low light. Still faster than the Panasonic 20mm 1.7 though and this is a macro lens.Manual focusing ring is nice and smooth but takes forever to turn.Focus limiter switch helps a lot with focusing speed but might be awkward to access.Focusing is quiet, which is great for video recording.Quality Control: 2/5This is mainly the reason why I gave this lens 4/5 stars. This lens is made in China and I just don't think it has the same quality control and... 4/5 E. Nguyen - See all my reviews, December 19, 2012

    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.

    quality product for macro work

    0 5/5 W. Ford "Medic 481" (Los Angeles) - See all my reviews, December 24, 2012

    Not really bright enough

    I have been using the MAL-1 arm light with the Olympus 60mm F2.8 Macro lens mounted on an Olympus OMD-EM5 camera. My photos have been a combination of indoor macro shots with the camera firmly mounted on a focus rail, and a few hand held shots outdoors in deep shade using the arm light as the primary illumination.Here are a few observations.This is a great idea that should have been executed much better. The LED lamps are just not bright enough to be very useful, especially when shooting hand held. With the lights only about 2 inches from the subject and the LED set to the HIGH setting, shutter speed at F/8 and ISO 200 is still a slow 1/40 of a second. That's OK when tripod mounted, but even with the excellent image stabilization of the OMD-EM5 it's just not good enough to obtain sharp closeup photos with my shaky hands. Only one of my handheld shots was sharp enough to save. Also, the 60mm macro lens seems to hunt excessively when set to auto focus. I... 3/5 Donald Krell "dnkrell" (Colleyville, TX USA) - See all my reviews, January 7, 2014

    Manual Extension Tubes

    These extension tubes are a very cheap way to obtain super-macro capabilities with a Panasonic Micro 4/3rds camera. If one reads the information from the actual Fotodiox site they will note that these extension tubes will not work in automatic mode. I think you can probably get such a set somewhere but at 10 times the price of these. It does mean that you have to switch the camera to the "no lens" mode, and run it in aperture priority or manual mode in order to take a picture. Obviously the 5 star rating considers the price. These are great tubes for the price but do not work in auto.I consider the Fotodiox tubes to be high quality. They lock snugly in place and have the feel of quality equipment.One problem I did have at first was that I did not know how to use the lens release mechanism. I called Fotodiox and they emailed me a video that showed how easy it was to use the release. It is hard to explain, but the button doesn't push in or pull out.

    0 4/5 Luis Vergani (Buenos Aires, Argentina) - See all my reviews This review is from: Fotodiox Macro Extension Tube Set for Extreme Close-up for Micro Four Thirds Cameras (Camera) The extension rings thread smoothly and firmly, are inexpensive, and perform the job as they are intended to.The kit is actually 5 pieces: lens adapter, camera adapter plus three optional rings 7, 14 and 28 mm long, which you can use either none, one or several rings.But, some inconveniencies:First, they isolate the electrical connection between lens and camera, autofocus and antishake are gone. No issue for me - I am using the extension rings to adapt a 50mm lens from my old Minolta on my new Panasonic G3, which wouldn't provide those functions anyway.Second, as the pieces screw in with each other, and don't stop at the same place, the lens will not appear right side up, but anywhere round the clock. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , January 31, 2012
