Olympus M.Zuiko Digital 60 mm f/2.8 ED Macro

11. Summary

Pros:
  • nifty casing with interesting design,
  • sensational image quality in the frame centre,
  • good image quality on the edge of the frame,
  • slight chromatic aberration,
  • zero distortion,
  • excellent coma correction,
  • moderate vignetting,
  • silent and very accurate autofocus.

Cons:

  • modest accessory kit,
  • noticeable astigmatism at the maximum relative aperture.

The next test of the Olympus equipment shows that fixed-focal lenses, produced by that company you can buy practically on spec. The company keeps a high quality level of its optics and they don’t launch any trash. Overall I get an impression that it is Olympus which emerges unscathed from a deluge of recent slip-ups, service notes and software actualizations. Their products are carefully polished up so the first customers aren’t turned into beta-testers. Nowadays it is really worth emphasizing and praiseworthy.

I don’t write a lot about the lens itself because there is no need to go on about it. Firstly it doesn’t have any competition in the Micro 4/3 system, secondly it is so good that you can recommend it to anybody, as we are doing right now.
