The Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 60mm f/2.8 Macro lens is one of only two dedicated macro lenses for the Micro Four Thirds system, and gives the equivalent of 120mm in 35mm film terms. We were able to have a hands on look at the lens at Photokina 2012, as well as take photos with it. The lens focuses internally, and gives a 1:1 macro ratio. In addition there is a macro limiter switch on the side of the lens to help get quicker focus from the camera.
These images were taken with a pre-production model, and we will be carrying out a full test of this lens when it becomes available.
