reviewswhat are people saying

"I use this mostly as a macro lens in conjunction with the ring flash. It does a stellar job with that, especially with flowers. I have also been happy with it as a portrait lens for indoor use; for outdoor portraits I prefer my 35-100 Zuiko zoom lens."

"I bought this lens to use with a E-620 underwater and not had time yet but above water gives great clear photo's seems it's a good all round lens not only a Macro lens , but also takes great macro photo's"

"This is SLOW and when you have your aperature wide open, getting the focus right on target is crucial."
