  • Dust and splash-resistant, Manual focusing is easy, Keeps chromatic aberrations to a minimum, Depth of field is great
  • No reproduction ratio display, Only 0.52x magnification, Distance window is obscured, Focusing is a little slow, Loses sharpness at wide apertures
  • Overall, the Olympus Zuiko Digital ED 50mm 1:2.0 Macro is a good performer, but one with room for improvement. At this price many would no doubt trade its weatherproofing for a more refined focusing motor. Nevertheless, once it's stopped down towards i...

  • Abstract:  Because of the 2x crop factor of all FourThirds D-SLRs, the Olympus 50mm f/2 offers a slightly narrower field-of-view from some other 50mm lenses.At 100mm, the Olympus 50mm f/2 Macro Zuiko ED is still a perfectly usable focal length for portraits and n...

  • harp optics at wider apertures
  • Long-winded focus options
  • This Four Thirds lens has macro on the side but only a 1:2 magnification ratio. It relies on the 2x crop factor to bring objects up to size. Despite this, the 50mm lens feels more like a 100mm on Olympus bodies, giving it an ideal focal length for ma...

  • The question for many macro enthusiasts could be whether to buy this lens or the 35mm ƒ/3.5. Optically, the 50mm ƒ/2 is a real treat: images are tack-sharp all the way to ƒ/16, there's terrific resistance to chromatic aberration, distortion and vignetting...

  • Excellent resolution performance, Olympus Zuiko Digital ED 50mm f/2 Macro Negligible CA, Olympus Zuiko Digital ED 50mm f/2 Macro Low distortion, Olympus Zuiko Digital ED 50mm f/2 Macro Low falloff at maximum aperture, Olympus Zuiko Digital ED 50mm f/2 Macro Good build quality
  • Fly by wire focusing system takes a little getting used too, Olympus Zuiko Digital ED 50mm f/2 Macro No focus range limiter
  • This lens is one with few shortcomings. Optically it is sharp from maximum aperture, with negligible levels of CA, distortion and falloff. In short, it is about as good as lenses can get from a technical standpoint.The dust and splashproof build is also r...

  • The Zuiko Digital ED 50mm f2 Macro is a small and lightweight yet admirably sharp lens. Peak optical performance is achieved at f/4 and f5.6, but the lens is unusually sharp even wide open, and diffraction does not really start to eat away at detail ...

  • Abstract:  As part of the four-thirds system the Olympus lenses, in effect, double in equivalent focal lengths, so this lens offers a similar angle of view as a 100mm lens on the E-system cameras. One of advantage of this is that lenses are much

  • Abstract:  Olympus Zuiko ED 50mm f/2 Macro reviewThis 50mm optic from Olympus, designed for their 4/3rds system, is billed as a macro lens but with a reproduction ratio of only 1:2 it is, in truth, a close focussing lens rather than a true macro and they are usin...

  • Ikke nok med at man får en god linse nærmere uten feil, den klarer både portrettfoto og makro med bravur. Bakdelen vi finner er at selv om feilene lyser med sitt fravær, så oppfører den seg ikke akkurat som en klassisk linse...
