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.
