When I first bought this lens I was really not happy with it. It took me some time to get used to it and the interface with the EM-5. Now I am quite pleased with the results I am getting and should have some shots in the Gallery with the lens that you can check out.
The AF/MF option allows me to get nice sharp results which I usually fuzz up a bit with my texturing but, that isn't the lens fault.

I use the macro lense to shoot while we're teaching at the Port Townsend School of Woodworking. I love the fact that I can switch from taking a portrait to the detail of a joint or tool without changing lenses. Crisp, quick focus. Excellent!

Still on preorder, but I got my lens in September (09.19)
As good as the FT 50mm Macro, but it is much faster on the E-M5. It is lightweight and sealed. So you can take pictures under all weather condition together with the sealed E-M5.
Excellent pics quality. Thumb up!!!!!
Perfect buy for my OMD E-M5

Users of micro 4/3 cameras have been waiting for a macro lens to rival the Oly 50mm f/2 lens for the 4/3 system. With *this* lens, their wait is finally over -- it's light, compact, and produces beautiful macro images. It's an excellent portrait and telephoto lens, too -- so it's very versatile.

Image quality is fantastic, probably as good as can ever be wished for in a lens this small. Weather sealed & good price make it an even better deal.
The focus limit dial on the side seems a bit odd to me, hope it doesn't break or jam up.
No lens hood included? LH-49 isn't even for sale yet? That's why I didn't give five stars.
