Olympus M.Zuiko 60mm Macro Lens Hands-On Sample Photos: Olympus 60mm Macro (9)

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.

This is a great looking lens, but performance is yet to be seen as these samples were taken in a "SHOW" environment, with a pre-productions sample. I hope that when the final lens ares released they have better results than are represented here.

Frankly, all four images are soft, and they were all taken at f4.5 not wide open at f2.8. One has to wonder what they would look like wide open.

Personally I don't understand the design philosophy behind bringing lens to the market that don't perform their best and maximum apertures. Seriously, what is the point? IMHO

It's not just Olympus, it all MFGs. Actually Olympus's two prime lens the 12mm and the new 75mm, both mFTs' lens are excellent.
