Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 60mm f/2.8 Macro Lens


This 1x* magnification macro lens features a dustproof and splashproof construction as well as high image quality and high contrast. With this lens you can shoot from far away to 1:1 magnification macro photography maintaining resolution and high contrast from the centre to the edges of the image. Also makes use of the sharp image capture from the widest aperture setting. In addition to nature macro photography, this lens is also ideal for landscapes and portraits.

This lens adopts a floating-type inner focusing system with three drive systems to achieve high image quality regardless of the focus distance (from landscapes to 1:1* macro shooting). ED (Extra-low Dispersion) and HR (High Refractive index) elements are employed in the fixed groups, while HR and E-HR (Extra-High Refractive index) elements are employed in the focusing groups.

This optical design makes it possible to remove chromatic aberrations that tend to occur with macro lenses. This lens boasts even better image quality than the Zuiko Digital 50mm F2.0 Macro, which is well-known for its excellent image quality.

To obtain true circular defocusing even at the widest aperture (F2.8), this lens directs light rays to the peripheral areas. The effect is to minimise vignetting to obtain circular defocusing, particularly in the macro domain. The lens optics is designed to eliminate double-line defocusing, which results in the blurred area being contoured with dual lines, and the occurrence of edges being coloured due to chromatic aberrations.

ZERO (Zuiko Extra-low Reflection Optical) Coating is applied to the lens surface to eliminate ghosts and flares that used to be difficult to reduce because of their high transparency. ZERO Coating boasts clear image quality even under challenging conditions such as a backlit environments.

Spot flare is a phenomenon that tends to occur when shooting a scene with dark centre and bright periphery using a stopped-down aperture, in which flares shaped like aperture blades are imaged in the frame. Thanks to the optimised layout of the lens groups behind the aperture and the effect of the ZERO (Zuiko Extra-low Reflection Optical) Coating, this lens also reduces spot flare. This is useful for capturing small items or accessories to enter into online auctions and for shooting in conditions with a high amount of contrast.

The finely detailed lens barrel provides a more secure grip. Other features such as the Focus Limit switch and a shooting distance/magnification indicator window enhance your macro shooting experience together with the sharp image quality. This lens makes it easier to enjoy hand-held macro shooting and, when combined with the OM-D E-M1 or E-M5 camera, provides maximum stability thanks to a powerful 5-axis image stabilisation mechanism that can compensate for shifting of the camera during macro shooting.

An indicator window showing shooting distance/magnification is placed on the lens barrel. This indicator window shows the entire focus area and thereby letting you know the focus point instantly. It also prevents you from turning the focus ring in the wrong direction and greatly enhances the shooting control and precision at manual focusing. The ED 60mm F2.8 Macro is the only macro lens* for compact system cameras that features such an indicator.

The MSC (Movie and Still Compatible) mechanism is the latest in optical design technology for achieving fast and silent focusing with a lightweight form and minimum number of lenses. The gears have been removed, eliminating operational noise. This mechanism drives the focusing lens directly using a metallic shaft and feed screws (screw drive) to enable fast, smooth, quiet, precise auto focusing.

Thanks to extensive use of ring-shaped seals in key locations throughout the lens, this lens features dustproof and splashproof capability equal to the Super High Grade and High Grade Zuiko Digital lenses. This lens can be used under any condition, even in rain or in rugged environments. When combined with the OM-D E-M5, dustproof and splashproof performance is maintained so you can concentrate on shooting without worrying about your camera in the most rigorous environments.
