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?

Lovely Macro Lens
This lens is the reason I bought my E-PL6. This is a lovely macro lens, and really shows the strengths of the micro 4/3 format. It's relatively cheap, small, and is a very capable macro. Looking forward to the new Olympus lenses when they come out.

New World of Macro
Never had a macro lense but this one great! Combined with the auto touch focus on the M5, it easy to use, well built and a real pleasure. Its opened a whole new world of composition and color. Highly recommended.

Touch focus makes this superb
Macro focusing is always tricky. Shallow depth of field means the focus/compose/shoot cycle often leaves the critical area out of focus. With the OM D and the touch focus feature on the LCD this is a thing of the past. Simply compose and then touch the part you want in focus. I added a 600R flash and a mini softbox. I use the flash in RC mode. Dial the ambient exposure down 2 stops and the flash up 2 stops (from the LCD) and take amazing mushroom photos that the Strobist would be proud of!
