    Cons: - Autofocus hunts - Aperture blades never really rounded - Feels a bit cheap (but it\'s not fragile) - No hood included

    Pros: - Very light and small for a 120mm equivalent lens - Weather sealed - Very good sharpness at all apertures

    Summary: This lens is incredibly light and small for it\'s focal lenght. Compared to this little thing, all other macro lenses are huge and heavy. Build quality is good, the lens is weather sealed but feels quite plasticky. Otherwise it was a mixed bag for me. Nothing to say about sharpness, it\'s simply great from wide open. From my opinion bokeh could have been better. Aperture blades were not properly aligned on the 2 samples I tried, resulting distracting bokeh balls when shooting against sun... Might sound as a detail but bokeh is an important purpose for a macro lens. Autofocus seemed overall quick but sometimes hunted at close distance and was not very reliable. I finally sold the lens because I thought it was overpriced.

    Cons: the package comes without a lens hood

    Pros: very good optical quality with well corrected LoCA (longitudinal chromatic aberration), relatively small, good match for medium size m43 cameras

    Summary: A great lens for reasonable price.

    Cons: Lenshood not included. It's a plastic lens.

    Pros: Although it's plastic lens it is well build. It's a small lens, very light and it has a focus limiter. You can make picture on a 1:1 scale. The lens is dust and splash water proof. It is very sharp, and has a nice bokeh.

    Summary: Great 60mm micro4/3 macro lens, for a reasanable prize. It' light and well build although it's a plastic lens. A must have for macro photographers on a micro 4/3 camera. I use it on a Olympus OMD EM1.

    Cons: You have to buy the lens hood separately

    Pros: Silent and fast AF, no longitudinal aberrations, good lens hood (but you have to buy it separately), focus limiter, small and light, water proof,

    Summary: The best macro lens for mFT (FT) in my opinion.

    Cons: none to speak of

    Pros: excellent across the board

    Summary: I find it odd that the lenstip review of this lens says "it has no competition in the micro 4/3 system, especially given the fact that lenstip reviewed the Panasonic Leica 45mm macro, which has been out for awhile, with equal praise for its sharpness and other qualities. The advantage of the Oly 60mm for macro is that it is a bit longer (60mm compared to 45mm) and it has better focus delimiters. The advantage of the PLeica 45mm is that it is shorter, which might be an advantage for indoor, general purpose shooting. They are both great lenses, but this Olympus 60mm certainly has stiff competition in the Leica 45mm. The latter, however, is more costly.
