my lens fell into a Japanese lake for 10 minutes. Feeling stupid and sick I read on line to keep it
submerged in rice for a week Still being stupid I put it in the rice without the caps. Rice then entered the little opening at the entry point. Every day I would check to see if the water drops were evaporating and then shake the heck out of the lens to get rid of the rice inside. Finally after a week I shook out the last bit of rice, mounted the lens to my 620 and to my surprise it works now. Amazing

Crystal clear images and gorgeous tonality from macro to infinity. Great bokeh. Two minor limitations: focusing speed at macro range and overall limitation to 1:2 or life size with adapter. I miss OM series committment to macro photography. Those times are gone. For today's E-series philosophy, the 50mm/2 macro is simply one of the best lenses.

Very crisp and clean, this lens is perfect for portraits and theatrical shots, as well as MACRO shots that take your breath away. I absolutely LOVE this lens!!

The customer service line is awesome. They can answer all my questions. I trust their recommendations. The fact that I can later invest in another Olympus body but still use the lenses I have is great.
I bought this lens in preparation for a friend’s daughter’s wedding. It did great. I use it for everything!!! The macro is awesome. My next investment will be the 12-60mm f2.8-4.0.

For the price, you cannot get anything better than this... it can work as a macro, portraits or general purposes lens.
Small and very light.
Portraits are awesome!!!
Macro are unbelievable sharp!!!
This lens should be in any 4/3 photographer's bag.
