Panasonic Lumix G 30mm f/2.8 Macro Overview

Designed for close-up shooting, the Lumix G Macro 30mm f/2.8 ASPH. MEGA O.I.S. from Panasonic is a 60mm-equivalent prime lens designed for Micro Four Thirds mirrorless digital cameras. Its macro capabilities enable a minimum focusing distance of 4.1" along with a 1:1 magnification ratio for life-size imaging of nearby subjects. One aspherical element helps to control spherical aberrations and distortions and a multi-layer coating reduces ghosting and lens flare for increased contrast and color fidelity.

In addition to the optical performance, the lens also features a MEGA O.I.S. system, which compensates for the effects of camera shake for sharper hand-held shooting. A stepping AF motor and internal focusing design offer fast, smooth, and near-silent focusing performance and the rounded seven-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing out-of-focus quality when working with selective focus and shallow depth of field techniques.

Panasonic Lumix G 30mm f/2.8 Macro Reviews

Why spend more?

I wanted a dedicated macro lens. Frankly I was skeptical of the reviews for a lens that was sub $300. I was wrong. This lens is very sharp and very fast and excellent at what it supposed to do.

Great for Close Up Macro Shots and More!

I bought this lens mostly for getting macro shots of things I wanted to sell online. It has worked well and I have been very happy with the results I've gotten with my Panasonic Lumix GX85, especially using the focus stacking feature that the GX85 has. As a bonus, I've also found that this lens works well as a 30mm prime lens as well, and has good low light abilities and is very sharp at almost all apertures. Working well for portraits and street shots I haven't found anything to criticize yet, I would highly recommend it!

Great bokeh, incredible minimum focus distance but doesn't need to be. The mft LUMIX lens line has a bunch of affordable fast prime lenses but they don't have stabilization, this is more expensive than the kit zooms and it's not weather sealed but im in love with shooting with this lens

Fabulous

Nice Lens

Very nice lens. Sharp, focuses well. Only complaint is using it for a long wide landscape shot. The focus was unpredictable. I guess that's why it's marketed as a macro lens. The macro function works well. I hope to use it as my medium portrait lens. I see no reason why it would not serve me well in that capacity. Here's a shot of a dead cicada which was stuck to my stucco exterior. Look at the detail on the wings. Impressive. I was about a 3 feet away.

Very nice

Combined with the two built-in focus stacking modes of my Lumix camera, gives very nice close-ups.

Great little lens

Does what it was designed to do, and does it very well. Sharp, focus fast and can get very close to the object. IS is effective and helps a lot, especially when you need to increase the DOF and go to higher F stops. Would buy it again!

A Great Macro Macro Four Third Lens To Have

By Anthony

I do a lot of close-up shootings, so I decided to get this lens when it was on a discounted price. I was attracted that the lens features a MEGA O.I.S. system, which compensates for the effects of camera shake for sharper hand-held shooting. It's a very useful tool to have if you do hate carrying a tripod all the time. The lens is a 60mm-equivalent prime lens designed for Micro Four Thirds mirrorless digital cameras. Its macro capabilities enable a minimum focusing distance of 4.1 along with a 1:1 magnification ratio for life-size imaging of nearby subjects. I am very pleased with it and you should try this lens if you love doing close up photography with your macro four thirds camera.
