All round prime! Strong lens, not just for macro.

  • Excellent macro, powerful 1 on 1.
  • Bright portrait lens too, with enthusiastic subjects even in low light.
  • No button to distinguish between focus near and far; so you have to use the box of tricks. So manual focus, or the 'hand method' (which is not the same thing). With some insight it is possible.

I take extremely sharp photos of the tiniest things (crisp insect wings after a spectacular crop with my Lumix g80, unsightly small flies in their mini-biotope and almost without crop...). But there is more: I also have a large portrait lens with me, which gives me nice images of people even in less light. The people I portray are enthusiastic, and they don't even realize the fact of nightfall. I do. And I just keep shooting! F2.8 is a wonderful number! But there is more: the bokeh of this lens speaks! And that is not the case for every lens! What mobility with my g80 and this thing on it! With this lens I, the dogged zoomer that I was, discovered the 'prime'. I remain a zoomer for landscapes, but wherever I go, I always regain the breadth of my vision with this product. Fair for landscapes, wonderful for the other aspects.

super sharp

  • super sharp
  • Compact
  • At 30mm you have to sit close to the subject

Used on Olympus OMD EM10II. Beautiful sharp photos, not only in the middle but the entire image. Reasonably bright with f2.8 so doable in daylight, I have not yet tried it in the evening or in a dark room. Nice blurred background, calm image. Also fine to use as a prime lens, a little more telephoto than normal. When you go from macro to far away, the autofocus takes a little longer, which is not disturbing. I have read that this is corrected with Panasonic bodies. Lens is compact and very light. Nice short minimum focusing distance. Image stabilization is useful but not important for Olympus body. I am very happy with this small macro lens. Photo is reduced jpg.

  • bright

An excellent macro lens that can also serve for portraits because of the good sharpness and maximum opening of 2.8

Good lens for a very good price

  • Fast beautiful photos
  • Lightweight
  • Focus can sometimes take a long time

The lens is very easy to use and it produces good results straight away, but sometimes the autofocus is a bit slow as there is no button to limit it for macro so there is some hunting at times. The focus ring is also unpredictable due to the Fly by wire system so if you turn quickly it suddenly focuses very quickly if you focus slowly it goes very slowly but otherwise a very good lens for a very good price
