Pros: Clarity, color reproduction, Light Weight, Sharpness
Cons: Slow focus at times, Hunts for focus

This is the more cost effective Olympus macro lens available for the four thirds system. It is astonishingly sharp with outstanding color reproduction. I can't emphasize enough how wonderful the color is from this lens. Images are very sharp with little, if any, distortion, pincushion, or chromatic aberration. The only knock I can give this lens is it's focus hunting. It can be quite annoying, but is only a problem in macro mode. Regular focusing is pleasant and relatively quick. Great choice for someone who doesn't have the cash to lay down on the pricier 50mm f/2.0 model. Buy it. It's worth the money!

Pros: 1:1 macro, razor sharp, lightweight
Cons: Slower auto-focus, plastic body

This lens is an amazing bargain for its image quality. Razor sharp - as sharp a lens as I have ever used. It is a true 1:1 macro lens, and does a fantastic job for me as my macro. It also does very well as a portrait lens at the equivalent focal length of 70mm. It's max aperture is quite large considering its affordable price and compact size. It's only real limitations are the slower auto-focus (though this is rarely a problem for me) and plastic build.


I absolutely love this lens. I use it for macro, portraits, and any time I just want a lightweight compact lens to carry around. I would highly recommend this - for the price it is a no-brainer.

Pros: Extremely light weight
Cons: f/3.5 is as wide as it goes

A wonderful addition to my collection, makes a great portrait lense with the bonus of macro capabilities. Extremely light weight.
