    Macro photography is an art form in itself. It reveals a world that often goes unnoticed and creates images with power and grace. The M.Zuiko 30mm Macro features a close focusing capability and strong magnification, making it ideal for shooting close-ups of a water drop hitting a puddle, a colorful leaf, or the details on a piece of old machinery. If you’re shooting a shiny object, a blacked out front minimizes reflection helping to reduce time-consuming post work.

The 2.5x maximum magnification (35mm equivalent) and close 14mm working distance get you closer to your subject than ever before.

If you don't NEED the 60mm, this is IT
Picked up this lens on a $99 sale thru #getolympus. I was dubious that it would come even close to the stellar and venerated 60mm Macro. Yes, its a 3.5 instead of 2.8, and its not weather sealed, and no, it doesn't have a hard lock at 1:1. But its been a great lens to shoot with regardless. maximum aperture of little concern, as you'll prolly be stopped down for macro DoF anyways (F/8 or more). Very sharp, quick to focus, and even focuses closer at a higher magnification than the 60mm. The wider field of view allows much more of the background/environment behind and around your subject, so they're less isolated and scientific looking than with the longer FL of the 60mm. This means its easier to depict your macro subject, even at 1:1.25, within its greater environment some. Of course, this also means you're closer to the subject, so flying insects become very difficult, tho not impossible, to photograph without a lot of patience as they get scared away. If you're an older photog like me, this is in many respects very, very similar to shooting with the venerable Nikon 55mm f/3.5 Micro-Nikkor on FF film, with similar aperture and focal length. Except if anything, this little olympus is even sharper. Even with its limitations vs the 60mm, I give it 5-stars for IQ, usability and the fact that its a great lens at an ever greater price.

Great light weight macro lens
I own both of Olympus' macro lenses. I like the 60mm lens better than this one for the quality of the macro photos and having more distance available for dealing with living subjects. Where this one shines is its much lighter weight. When I’m putting on the miles out on a trail this makes a difference. Have been very happy with the quality of the images this lens has produced. I shoot macro quite often and can whole heartedly recommend this lens if you do, too.

Good beginner Macro. Nice contrast.
Good lens to get started with macro work. I bought it to have a small and light lens that traveled well. You have to get very close to your subject with this lens so lighting your subject can be hard. Overall it is sharp and does the job it was built for,
