    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

    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.

    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?)

    5/5 PB82 - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Olympus V321200BW000 Macro Converter MCON-P02 (Black) (Electronics) This converter is perfect for people who don't want to invest in a dedicated macro lens but like being able to get closer. I have found it allows my 45mm to focus much closer than otherwise, and the sharpness remains excellent. Attached are some examples. I may eventually get an Olympus 60mm 2.8 Macro, but the converter lets me get a taste of macro without spending the money or investing the time in serious macro work., May 2, 2015

    This Macro Converter is a compromise, but one I can live with.

    An inexpensive, lightweight macro solution providing good image quality

    4/5 Paul Whitington - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Olympus V321200BW000 Macro Converter MCON-P02 (Black) (Electronics) I was pleasantly surprised by the image quality of this converter when used in combination with the M.Zuiko 14-42mm EZ lens on an OM-D E-M10 - it seems to be comparable to the Zuiko 35mm f3.5 macro lens I have been using to date. Auto focussing at least in reasonable light levels seems to be just as quick and reliable as with the 14-42mm EZ lens alone. Gives a very light, compact and inexpensive macro solution. The only downside is that using the adapter at a 42mm focal length limits the maximum focussing distance to a bit over 300mm. Highly recommended.

    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.
