Sharp like a knife!
This is one of the sharpest lenses in the Olympus arsenal, and is highly under-rated. It is my "reference lens" when testing other lenses. Amazing that it was designed for 10 megapixel sensors, but it shows additional detail in 50 megapixel high-def images taken with my OM-D E-M1 Mark II. The sharpness alone would give it a "five," but I knocked it down for three things: 1) It has a plasticy feel about it, and the body it is easily scuffed and scratched. I wish it were a metal lens! 2) The hood is vaguely spherical, and it makes the lens roll around in the bag and makes it difficult to handle. 3) Autofocus is slow, and has no range limiter, so it tends to search through its entire range, especially in poorly-lit macro situations. With the proper adapter, it works fine with µ4/3rds bodies, but the auto-focus is even slower on all but the E-M1, because it is designed for PDAF, and most µ4/3rds bodies only to CDAF. But these factors make it a bargain! Particularly #1, as the body ages more than the optics, and you can find copies for a bargain with perfect optics, but with scuffed-up bodies.

Not just sharp, beautiful...
This lens has been carefully tested by many reviewers, including my own tests in the CameraMonger™ LensLab. So you probably already know it is very sharp, from wide open all the way to at least f/8. You may also know it is a great macro, and an excellent portrait lens, and a useful fast prime that should be in any complete 4/3 lens collection. It goes beyond the documented and measured factors. The contrast, colour, and overall look of the photos is spectacular. Objects seem so real that you might try to pick them up from the photo, and portraits just seem to capture the soul of the subject. Because it is not the newest, glass on the bock, the price has come down to a very affordable range for a fully professional quality lens. If you're on a budget, it may the only lens you get of this quality -- definitely a worthwhile investment in your photo business or hobby. The pictures included here were taken with this lens.

Great optics, precision focus and great quality ,will meet your macro needs
Was listed as "as is" but it showed up looking like new. The lens is a great for macro and portrait shots...I bought this as I wanted a lens specifically for macro photography. This fits in nicely. It is compact and precise..will have more to say once I get more use of it!
