Love it!

This is my first dedicated macro lens, but I've used other zoom lenses with "macro" features on them and that got me hooked on close-up photography. The lens is very small, and very easy to use. The focus takes some getting used to, but it is easy once you get familiar with it. This lens opens up a whole new world of photography for me. I find myself looking for opportunities to use it! Highly recommended!

if you like macro, its a must have

What a great little macro lens. The fine detail, clarity and color this lens can pickup is spectacular. Took me e moment to get used to the focus but only a moment. Pairs up nicely with the MAL-1 macro arm light. Works double duty as a decent portrait lens as well. it's small and light, yet feels well built. I actually found myself headed out with one lens on the camera and the macro in my back pocket so I didn't need a bag.

Way smaller form factor than expected

I was astonished at how small and compact this lens is! The diameter of the barrel is along the lines of the size of a U.S. Half Dollar (if you can remember those). Way smaller than I expected. This isn't a negative, but just something I wasn't expecting. Especially since it was a F2.8 lens and a 1:1 macro.

You pretty much have to use the focus limiter when going between macro mode and regular shooting. The time to focus is too long if you don't.

Great lens, and the dual purpose of macro and medium telephoto is quite handy! I have this and the 75mm F1.8 and like them both, but the macro does have some additional benefit with the close focus ability.

Getting one refurbished was a no brainer. Looked brand new and operated perfect. Either way, it is a great lens to add for the shear AF Macro that works pretty much spot on even in low light with out the AF illuminator.

Top Notch

Great Lens.
Fast and tough with a useful length.
Focus limit switch is a little fiddly but you get used to it.

As sharp a macro as I've seen

Small, light fast and shaaaarp! As good as the revered Nikon 105 and 200 and much smaller/lighter. Take incredible close-ups with it and take up little room/weight in your bag.

Must have lens

This lens is great for getting those artistic-fuzzy background shots, or the close-up of a ladybug. I use it a lot and I'm pretty lazy about changing my lenses. I prefer to have an all around lens on my camera so I'm ready for anything, but I put this lens on so often, I've never regretted buying it.

Excellent Macro

I started using the 12-50mm with extension tubes for Macro photography about 6 months ago. Results were good but my minimal focal distance was very short. I recently switched to the 60mm f2.8 Macro. The lenses supplies excellent working distance from subject as expected. What I wasn't counting on was the significant increase in image IQ. This lens pull out extremely fine detail and color rendering was more pleasing to my eye.

Wonderful macro lens.

I was shooting at the Chicago Botanic Gardens Orchid show and the shots were sharp with good color. There were several people with Nikon and Canon cameras with huge lens. Good job I don't suffer from lens envy as my OM-D E-M1 with the macro looked like a toy in comparison. Having used both systems this lens was just as good if not better. Great lens but why so chintzy Olympus with not providing hoods?

A Must for Close-up Work

I use this lens all the time for product photos and portraits alike. It is extremely sharp, if you can nail the focus and keep the camera shake under control (harder that it seems!).

I highly recommend that you get a good lighting setup, or at the very least, the Macro Arm Light (MAL-1) so you can keep the shutter speed up with a low ISO with a smaller aperture. f2.8 is hillariously narrow for really close macro work.

Excellent Macro/portrait Lens

I've got to echo much of Kevin's comments. Very good macro, lens is solid and does take a little getting use to. No lens hood and impossible to find if you don't by directly from Olympus at a $55.00 price. Why do I feel like I'm getting fleeced?
