Designed to meet the needs of the professional photographer, Zuiko Digital lenses were born of an uncompromising commitment to performance. Olympus' legacy in industry-leading scientific, industrial, medical and consumer optics continues with the Zuiko promise of impeccable image quality and the pursuit of lens perfection.
Macro photography is all about the details – and this lens is powerful enough to pick up fine minute details at close distances! Featuring a 1x* magnification and minimum focusing distance of about 7-and-a-half inches it strikes a nice balance between just close enough and not so close you’ll cast shadows on the scene. It’s also worth noting that the 60mm Macro features an extremely bright f2.8 maximum aperture for superb low-light performance and advanced construction employing no less than 13 separate lens elements in 10 groups including some high-end glass materials to help eliminate chromatic aberrations.
