A very good lens, but maximum aperture of 2.8 is disappointing. The Olympus FT macro opens to f2.0, is't much larger, costs far less money while offering optical performance at least as good if not better. Clearly the Leica name alone is not worth the extra money...

I think this is one of the best lenses I have ever owned. I use it with my Olympus EN5 and it provides me with amazing results. My preference is for taking very close flower macro's and this lens certainly delivers. I almost never have a dud shot, which makes it hard to choose which might be the best out of several of the same subject. It also takes very good, more distant shots, plus it's small and light. I'd give it 10 out of 10.  :-)
