Description: Bright fixed focal macro lens
ED glass elements for highest images quality
Splash-proof Pro lens

The high-quality ZUIKO DIGITAL 50mm 1:2.0 Macro lens offers an equivalent range of 100mm on a 35mm film camera.

This is a special macro photography lens designed for use with the Macro flash system but also equally good in normal use. Its 2.0 maximum aperture gives it great light-gathering power. The lens includes an ED element for sharp, brilliant colour images.

It offers a magnification of 1:2 (half life size), which has an image magnification size equivalent to life size (1:1) in a 35mm film photo.

Pros: extremely sharp, great color, lightweight
Cons: noisy focus motor, sometimes hunts-no focus limit switch

Very very good lens. Absolutely a better lens than I am a photographer. Maybe better than I'll ever be. Great for portraits or as a normal prime. Some learning curve for portraiture as it will expose every flaw the model possesses unless you controll the dof. Good walk around lens. Where it truly shines is for macro. Its resolution is awe inspiring. It works well with extension tubes or teleconverters. For me a winning combination is with the EC-20 teleconverter. Working distance stays about 4 inches with autofocus and metering working well. It acts like a F/4 100mm prime macro with no image degradation I can see. With Olympus in body IS, it handholds at ridiculously long exposures. Yes it's a little expensive at a little under $400 today, but even at that, I'd recommend it to anyone.
