        Comments about 60mm f/2.8 DN Lens for Micro Four Thirds Mount Cameras (Black):

        This is a useful lens for me, joining my my first two M43 lenses -- the M.Zuiko 12-40mm PRO and the M.Zuiko 75-300mm, so it was also a much cheaper purchase. The Sigma 60mm falls in a useful range, reaching a bit further than the 12-40mm while being much smaller and lighter, yet about as sharp. It's noticeably sharper than the 75-300mm, while having a faster f/2.8 aperture. The colors come out a bit more saturated than the zooms though still true to life. As others have noted, the lens tends to clack about when the camera is off. This effect is reduced if I hold the camera with the lens pointing up. While I accept this is harmless, it is still annoying.I'm still learning to use the Sigma but very pleased so far.

          Comments about 60mm f/2.8 DN Lens for Micro Four Thirds Mount Cameras (Black):

          Purchased after reading reviews around the interweb. Turns out it really is a lens that is well worth the money spent - and more! Being used with Olympus m4/3 cameras. Using it for landscape, portrait and anything else that fits my vision for a lens of this focal length.Focus is fast, the lens is sharp from f2.8 on. I don't find the metal barrel too slick to focus manually, a non issue for me.The lens internals do rattle when off the camera. The lens fits a bit tight on the cameras.The lens hood included seems a bit short to be totally effective.The lens case included is excellent.Overall a wonderful lens at a wonderful price.

              Comments about 60mm f/2.8 DN Lens for Micro Four Thirds Mount Cameras (Silver):

              Overall I'm happy with the lens and nothing else comes close in this price range. Some small issues are that the barrel is very slick and tough to manually focus. Also, because most of the barrel is a focus ring, it is a bit tough to take the lens off the camera as (depending on the camera) it is tough to get your fingers at the base of the lens. There also is the clicking that happens when the focus system engages when turning on the camera. All really minor and not enough for me to dock it a star. Great, well built lens for the money though.

              Comments about 60mm f/2.8 DN Lens for Micro Four Thirds Mount Cameras (Black):

              Quite simply put, this lens is an incredible value. Its very sharp, even wide open with great contrast and color. I use this lens on an Olympus E-PL1 and autofocus is acceptably quick (though I realize it would be faster on a newer m43 camera). The build quality is very good (especially at this price) and the hood (which I leave permanently attached) and the lens case are a bonus. I find this lens great for portraits as well as close ups of flowers and plants, but the 60mm focal length lends itself to many other applications as well. About the only negative thing I can say about the lens is that the smooth barrel isn't the easiest to use for manual focusing, buts its certainly workable. It also shows fingerprints easily. All in all, the best lens I've ever purchased for the m43 system.

                Comments about 60mm f/2.8 DN Lens for Micro Four Thirds Mount Cameras (Black):

                I got this lens to use with my Panasonic Lumix GH3 and GX7cameras. Even at full retail (US$ 239), this lens is quite a value; on sale, even more so. I usually assess the optical quality of my lenses by viewing their images at 100% magnification. The Sigma does not disappoint; it's as good as anything else I own. Usage is straight-forward; the autofocus works well with my Panasonic cameras. The lens is actually smaller than I expected, another plus. I used to own a Sigma MFT 30mm lens, but sold it because a) 30 mm wasn't a good focal length for me - it was either too short or too long, and b) the maximum aperture of f2.8 was too small for my usage on a lens of this focal length. Neither of these is a problem for me with this lens: 60mm is just a bit shorter than the tradition 135mm full-frame focal length and a maximum aperture of f2.8 on a short telephoto lens is acceptable. This lens' only real competition is the Olympus 75mm/f2.8 even though the effective 30mm difference in focal lengths makes them difficult to compare. I believe this lens is a good value because it approaches the Olympus in image quality at 1/3 the price.

                You do get the Sigma clunk with this lens - the focus mechanism disengages when the lens is powered down and some internal piece moves when the lens is moved. This does not bother me; I believe Sigma when they say this is not a problem.

                Others have complained that the manual focus barrel is difficult to control because it is smooth instead of knurled; again, not a problem for me.

                My one nit to pick is how tightly the lens attaches to the camera. Once attached, this lens is not going to move relative to the camera body (a good thing.) But the tightness coupled with the size of the focus barrel makes it smoewhat difficult to get a grip on to remove.

                  Use this on a E-M1 and GX7.

                  The lens is very sharp right from wide open.

                  When the camera is off it makes a clanking sound. Turn the camera on and the clank stops.

                  The barrel is smooth and slippery making manual focusing awkward.

                  Focus is relatively quick and accurate.

                  Finally a lens cap that doesn't slip out of your fingers or is restricted by the hood.

                  I don't know what Sigma was thinking when they designed this lens.

                  In spite of these flaws I will keep it because of the image quality.

                    Comments about 60mm f/2.8 DN Lens for Micro Four Thirds Mount Cameras (Black):

                    I purchased this lens to use on my Olympus EPL5. The lens handles well on the EPL5 and the black lens I purchased matches nicely with the silver EPL5. The lens barrel is smooth and shiny and at first I wasn't sure how it was going to look or feel but once I mounted it to the camera I felt it looked just fine and I can manual focus the smooth barrel with no problem. Sharpness! wow, I was blow away by how sharp the lens is. It's sharp in the center at f2.8 with good corners and by f5.6 it's amazingly sharp center and corner to corner. The lens rattles if you shake it when the camera is off but once the camera is powered on, you don't hear it anymore. I honestly think I prefer this lens to my very sharp Olympus 45 1.8. The Sigma 60mm f 2.8 is superb lens in it's own right at a very reasonable price compared to most other Micro Four Thirds lenses that I've purchased.

                        This one sharp lens. It rivals the best from Panasonic and Olympus. It has a rattle when not mounted or when camera is turned off. This is due to the linear AF mechanism. It is amazing to get a high performance, well made lens that includes a lens hood and a zippered case for this low price.

                        Comments about 60mm f/2.8 DN Lens for Micro Four Thirds Mount Cameras (Black):

                        I have to say I like Sigma lenses and this prime is no exception. I think that it's an ideal focal length for micro 4/3, ie 120mm effective. This is near-as-dammit the 135mm telephoto prime that was used in the 'old days' and you can see why. Reasonably fast at F2.8 and easy to focus manually and gets good images. One thing that I discovered with regard to max aperture is this. Just as a micro 4/3 lens has double the focal length indicated (so this 60mm lens effectively becomes 120mm) so also it has double the field of focus for a given aperture. So f2.8 on micro 4/3 has equivalent focal range as f5.6 full frame. This makes a difference when trying to get a face in focus and background out of focus for example and it's why the kit zoom lens is much less useful than this prime IMO. Drawbacks -- is there something loose inside the lens? Apparently the 'clanking' sound is normal but it's rather disconcerting and seems as though a lens element is flapping about. But so far it has not interfered with any photos. The other gripe is the packaging. The lens' protective packing for transit doubles as a one-size-fits-all bag which effectively renders it useless. Could you not spare a dollar for a simple lens bag Sigma?

                          Comments about 60mm f/2.8 DN Lens for Micro Four Thirds Mount Cameras (Black):

                          I was wondering buying the Zuiko 60/2.8; not for the macro but because the focal length pleases me. Then I tried it along with the Sigma 60/2.8 at the BH counter in a E-M1. Both produced the same sharpining result. After purchasing it, I, calmly compared it with my (excellent) zuiko zoom 14-150. The results at 60mm obtained with the Sigma wide-open surpassed the zoom results. The price is very good. The hood seems too short. Highly recommended.

                          Sharp corner to corner. I returned an Olympus 45mm due to it being soft and decentered, tried 2 copies, not happy with either. Got this sigma and was so impressed I also offered the 30mm. These are underrated and great.

                          Purchased this lens used from B&H and it is fantastic. VERY sharp, quick focusing, compact, reasonably light. Came with a very nice case, and lens hood that is reversible for easy transport.
                          Have only begun shooting with it, on Lumix G6 and G5, but can attest to its brilliant clarity, contrast and color rendition. Very affordably priced. Get one if you can!

                          I have been using this lens on my M4/3rds E-PM2 mostly for nature/landscape photography and am happy with it. Colors and sharpness are surprising for a lens at this price point.
                          My only complaint is that Sigma supplies the same lens hood for all their DN lenses regardless of focal length.

                          Comments about 60mm f/2.8 DN Lens for Micro Four Thirds Mount Cameras (Black):

                          I usually don't write lens reviews but wanted to let other M43 photographers know how excellent this lens is, at any price. Sharpness is outstanding corner to corner, with minimal, easily corrected chromatic aberration, and good resistance to flare. If it had a red dot on it, it would sell for many times its very low $[$]. This is an excellent lens and ships with a good case and lens hood for that low price. It's probably as sharp as my Olympus 75mm f/1.8 and has noticeably better flare resistance than my Panasonic-Leica 25mm Summilux. Although it doesn't seem built to the standards of a Pentax Limited or top-end Olympus lens, I see no negatives of any consequence.I do not write fan-boy reviews. This is simply an excellent lens at an excellent price for M43 cameras, particularly those with in-body image stabilization hardware.

                              Great lens for the price. No motion stabilization, so best combined with one of the olympus micro four thirds.

                              Nonetheless, I'm more than happy with the performance even in my GF1.

                                The lens has excellent resolution and contrast starting at F2.8 and say 5%less at f16. The chromatic aberration is very well controled. The focus is very silent and reasonably fast. The design is very pleasant, very nice finish and overall design. For the price consider it a treasure. Dont miss it!
