A versatile lens optimized for working with close-up subjects, the M.Zuiko Digital ED 60mm f/2.8 Macro from Olympus is a 120mm equivalent prime for Micro Four Thirds mirrorless cameras. Pairing with the telephoto focal length, the lens offers a maximum 1:1 magnification and a 7.5" minimum focusing distance to permit photographing close subjects with fine detail. A Focus Limit Switch can also be used to better facilitate working at close or distant range by constraining the focusing mechanism for faster, more precise AF. Also contributing to focusing performance, a Movie & Still Compatible system is used to offer quick, quiet, and smooth AF that is suitable for both photo and movie applications. In regard to the optical design, extra-low dispersion and high refractive index glasses are used to control a variety of aberrations and a ZERO coating has applied to suppress flare and ghosting to improve contrast and color accuracy.

Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 60mm f/2.8 Macro Reviews
New Olympus Macro Lens
I recently purchased this new macro lens and am very happy with it. The lens is surprisingly light and small which is great for a macro lens that I also might be trying to hand-hold to shoot and need a lighter weight if possible. The performance of the lens is on the money and I am very pleased with this purchase.
Perfect macro lens
Great optical quality, associated with focus stacking produces great images.
Very nice lens, smaller than it looks a great match for the OM 1 quick focus and very easy focus stacking.
Very sharp macro lens.
Have used it for flowers mainly - some insects. Great reach at 120 mm 35 mm equivalent. Very satisfied with sharpness
Great images with this lens
Very well built lens, and has a convenient range adjustment for when you are switching between closeup and normal photography. This lens does a good job as a backup portrait lens, in addition to being fantastic macro lens. I had a Nikkor 105mm macro that was very slow at focusing. This lens is much quicker, and works fantastic with the focus stacking on many Olympus bodies. Great addition to my lens lineup.
So far so good.
It's my first lens by Olympus so I don't have anything else to compare it to that they make. It's plasticky, it's also versatile. I'm not fond of the limiter dial on the side really. But the images I have taken with it so far are sharp. I use it on the EM1 mark iii. It unlocks certain features that can only be used in conjunction with an Olympus lens.
excellent optics. excellent definition, very good build quality, it is appreciated that it is sealed, small to carry in a jacket pocket. As always Olympus optics surprise.
PERFECT FOR ME
I have spent the entire weekend crawling around on my hands and knees following all the turtles and torts as well as an occasional bug for what I think might be the perfect shot.
