The new Olympus 60mm macro lens
May 6, 2012

By looking at this image

the new macro lens looks pretty long or big compared to the PL 45mm macro. Both has 1:1 ratio macro and the PL has IS built-in and Olympus is weather sealed. My question is why does the Olympus 60mm look much longer or bigger than the PL 45mm? Plus the side switch on the 60mm macro looks odd to me.
