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.

Prime 30mm portrait-length lens provides a 60mm equivalent focal length with Micro Four Thirds cameras.
Macro design provides a life-size 1:1 magnification ratio and a minimum focusing distance of 4.1" for working with close-up subjects.

Multi-layer coating controls lens flare and ghosting for increased contrast and neutral colors.
Stepping AF motor and internal focus design provides smooth and quiet focusing performance that is well-suited to both photo and video use.
MEGA Optical Image Stabilizer minimizes the appearance of camera shake to benefit handheld shooting in difficult lighting conditions.
Rounded seven-blade diaphragm produces a smooth out-of-focus quality when working with selective focus and shallow depth of field techniques.

question

when used on an Olympus OM D Em1 or 5 mk 2 ... does this lens work with the focus bracketing feature where the body can move the lens to focus points automatically?
Asked by: Pavel
To be honest, I do not have those Olympus bodies - but - I believe that the function you are talking about takes place in the body of the camera and not in the type of lens attached. My educated guess would be there would be no problem with that function.
