David Thorpe reviews the Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 30mm f/3.5 1:1.25 Macro lens for Micro Four Thirds cameras, and compares it to the Olympus 60mm f/2.8 1:1 macro lens.

The 30mm macro gives 1.25x magnification, which is more than most which offer 1:1 reproduction. The lens does not feature optical image stabilisation, so the use of a camera body with built-in image stabilisation is recommended. 

Once you've watched the video, take a look at David's YouTube channel where you'll find more camera and lens reviews.

Wha's the house in the sample images? I'm far more interested in that than this lens, which I wouldn't be interested in if it was priced at the 50 it's probably worth.

The only thing premium is the price, to paraphrase a different marketing campaign.
