I stumbled upon this picture driven user video review. It's an enjoyable very optimistic review. Nothing wrong with that, but don't expect a lot of charts and graphs.

In my opinion, this is one of the most interesting lenses in any mirrorless system (at least for me). It's the only 1:1 macro in mirrorless that I know of, and it seems to be brilliant on the E-M5. This combo is the one that might get me to leave my DSLR at home.

I'll have to take a look when I get home this evening. I do believe the Panasonic/Leica 45mm f2.8 also goes to 1:1 on its' own.

I've had the 60 Olympus Macro now for a few weeks. Excellent size. I rarely go as close as 1:1. I tend to use it for non-macro closeups where I've always been frustrated not being able to get close enough with the 45mm f1.8 (tried the Olympus closeup attachment with it....not very good), and as a short tele, both of which the 60 does really well.
