i had the 45mm macro and sold it after a few months


AF struggling big time and is awfully slow

IQ could be better for a macro

I have yet to own the 60mm but do believe it's the better lens than the Leica based on reviews, especially Ming Thien's


Did you use it on the OM-D? Mine was struggling on the G1, but is perfect on the OM-D: fast, precise focus at macro and medium distances. Also sharp to the edges at f 4.

Hallo Fritz,

impressive picture!

What plant does it show? Seems to be some Euphorbia species.
